The 3rd International Conference on Metals and Hydrogen “SteelyHydrogen2018” gathered 177 participants from 27 countries. The conference focused on hydrogen embrittlement of metals with a targeted balance between academic research and industrial experience. The expanded scope, including aluminium, titanium and nickel based alloys, resulted in highly appreciated dedicated sessions on these topics. We are convinced this opened new perspectives in providing insights with regard to hydrogen related issues.

I presented a paper – poster titled:

Our recent article (2016):

Hydrogen Embrittlement of Industrial Components: Prediction, Prevention and Model

Milos B. Djukic, Gordana M. Bakic, Vera Sijacki Zeravcic, Aleksandar Sedmak, and Bratislav Rajicic, Hydrogen Embrittlement of Industrial Components: Prediction, Prevention, and Models. CORROSION. 2016; 72(7): 943-961., http://dx.doi.org/10.5006/1958

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.

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement


The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific approach, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area.

The Network of Excellence in Hydrogen Embrittlement is structured so that it consists of the following branches:

  1. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on LinkedIn
  2. Hydrogen Embrittlement  – Understanding and research framework Project
    on ResearchGate
  3. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Mendeley
  4. Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog on WordPress
  5. Research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms” (closed now) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
  6. Damage and Fracture Mechanism Group on LinkedIn
