Title:Hydrogen-enhanced localized plasticity
Author(s):Birnbaum, Howard K.; Sofronis, Petros
Subject(s):Mechanism Of Hydrogen-related Fracture
Hydrogen Enhanced Localized Plasticity
Abstract:The mechanisms of hydrogen related fracture are briefly reviewed and a few evaluative statements are made about the stress induced hydride formation, decohesion, and hydrogen enhanced localized plasticity mechanisms. A more complete discussion of the failure mechanism based on hydrogen enhanced dislocation mobility is presented and these observations are related to measurements of the macroscopic flow stress. The effects of hydrogen induced slip localization on the measured flow stress is discussed. A theory of hydrogen shielding of the interaction of dislocations with elastic stress centers is outlined. It is shown that this shielding effect can account for the observed hydrogen enhanced dislocation mobility.
