An invited talk – paper titled:
HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT IN LOW CARBON STEEL AND THE SYNERGISTIC INTERPLAY OF THE HELP AND HEDE MECHANISMS
– Prof. Milos B. Djukic, University of Belgrade, Faculty of Mechanical Enginnering, Serbia
will be presented in a Special Session on HYDROGEN-RELATED KINETICS IN MATERIALS (SS10), DSL-2017-Hydrogen Session -flayer free to download
13th International Conference on Diffusion in Solids and Liquids, DSL 2017
which will be held in VIENNA (Austria) from 26-30 June, 2017.
Abstract of invited talk:
The simultaneous activity and synergistic interplay of the hydrogen-enhanced decohesion (HEDE) and hydrogen-enhanced localized plasticity (HELP) mechanisms of hydrogen embrittlement (HELP+HEDE) was fully confirmed for the first time in low cartbon grade 20 – St.20 (or 20G, equivalent to AISI 1020) steel specimens in situ charged with hydrogen, and not only through simulation and modeling [1,2].
The activity of a particular hydrogen embrittlement (HE) mechanism depends on the local concentration of hydrogen in investigated steel. The HELP+HEDE model of HE in low carbon steels is based on the correlation of mechanical properties to scanning electron microscopy fractography analysis of fracture surfaces in the presence of simultaneously active hydrogen embrittlement micro-mechanisms . The effects and correlations between microstructure, fractographic observations, and macro-mechanical testing data (tensile testing, impact strength and hardness) are also considered.
This paper also gives an overview of the application of a model for structural integrity analysis of boiler tubes made of low carbon steel exposed during operation to a local corrosion process and multiple hydrogen assisted degradation processes: HE mechanisms (HELP+HEDE) and high-temperature hydrogen attack .

About Special Session 10
HYDROGEN-RELATED KINETICS IN MATERIALS (SS10)
Prof. Markus Wilde
Institute of Industrial Science,
The University of Tokyo
Continued annually since DSL-2010. This session discusses broad aspects of hydrogen (H)-related kinetics and H-induced phenomena in materials from a fundamental viewpoint. The aim is to obtain a deeper understanding of dynamical processes such as the atomic-level mechanisms of the reversible hydrogen transportation across the gas/solid interface relevant to hydrogen (hydride) storage, hydrogen purification by permeation, hydrogen isotope retention in plasma-facing materials, and hydrogenation catalysis. Emphasis is also placed on interactions of hydrogen with the micro- or defect structure in the volume of (nano-)materials that can induce drastic physical (mechanical or electrical) property changes but still lack adequate explanations.
In addition to welcoming all subject below, special highlights of the 2017 Session are direct detection techniques for hydrogen (diffusion) dynamics as well as hydrogen-induced electronic effects in semiconductor devices. Both experimentalists and theoreticians are strongly encouraged to participate.
Topics of the special session include:
- H-diffusion (surface and bulk)
- H in nanoparticles and thin films
- Hydrogenation catalysis
- Hydrogen permeation
- Electrochemistry, Fuel cell catalysis
- H-defect interactions
- H-induced vacancy formation and diffusion
- H impact on the tribology of surfaces
