Hydrogen assisted degradation of structural steels in service conditions

Summary

The effect of hydrogen assisted degradation on engineering steels will be analysed. Mechanism, stages and features of materials degradation as a result of long-term combined influemce of stresses and hydrogen will be discussed. The methods for evaluating the degradation degree of steels will be presented.
