Effects of the shot-peening on hydrogen permeation and retention behaviors were examined by applying tritium tracer techniques to the gas-driven hydrogen permeation experiments. Hydrogen permeability in shot-peened iron was reduced by a factor of ten in comparison with the as-received iron at lower temperatures of 298 K and 453 K. The effects were disappeared at higher temperatures than 473 K. Hydrogen was trapped at least two trapping sites induced by the shot-peening treatment. The amount of trapped hydrogen in the shot-peened surface was three times larger than that in the normal surface of the as-received iron.
