Title: Environmentally Assisted Cracking and Hydrogen Embrittlement Affecting Structural Integrity of Engineering Materials: Analytical, Numerical and Experimental Approaches.

Summary: Environmentally assisted cracking is a general phenomenon of material degradation and fracture present under any circumstance, since any environment is potentially aggressive from the point of view of the damage/failure process. Participants will become acquainted with fundamental aspects, analytical, numerical and experimental approaches related to environmentally assisted cracking and hydrogen embrittlement.
