“Professor Milos Djukic, et al., presented a modeling approach that can be applied to industrial boiler tube systems, in a paper titled, “Hydrogen Embrittlement of Industrial Components: Prediction, Prevention, and Models.” This paper focuses on predictive models for the hydrogen embrittlement of plain carbon steels used in industrial boiler systems. Correlations between microstructure, fractographic observations, and macro-mechanical testing data are used to propose a model enabling enhanced predictive maintenance of industrial component systems. Crack formation and growth due to hydrogen embrittlement (HE) and high-temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA) are both addressed.“

A background for the analysis of the viable hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms: hydrogen-enhanced localized plasticity (HELP) and hydrogen-enhanced decohesion (HEDE) in a ferritic-pearlitic carbon steel and development of a model for structural integrity analysis is a literature overview about the current state of the art in hydrogen embrittlement modeling and studies (140 References), presented in this paper.
