TC10 - Lecture 6

The potential of dedicated experimental methodologies to evaluate H/mat interaction

Summary

This lecture addresses some dedicated experimental methodologies that were developed in order to shed some light on the hydrogen/material interaction. Focus will be given on the evaluation of the effect of hydrogen on the mechanical properties of a material, on the study of the hydrogen diffusion process and on hydrogen trapping. Complementary material characterization techniques will demonstrate their added value when studying the hydrogen/material interaction.
