In this manuscript, we investigate the influence of hydrogen on the environmentally assisted cracking of the high-strength magnesium alloy AZ31B.
Hydrogen embrittlement is a common, dangerous, and poorly understood cause of failure in many metal alloys. This article presents a model 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.
In this article, we present and debate the various hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking mechanisms of magnesium and magnesium alloys.
This article describes the different forms of environmentally assisted cracking that can affect low alloy steels and corrosion resistant alloys in the oil & gas industry.
Do magnesium alloys suffer environmentally assisted cracking?
In this work, presented at CORROSION 2014, we investigated the hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking of magnesium alloy AZ31B in chloride solutions.
How can we prevent cracking of high strength low alloy steels when exposed to hydrogen? Take a look at my presentation at the 2015 Robust Materialvalg i Oljeindustrien conference.
