Abstract

Generally, there are two important questions which are to be addressed if the hydrogen embrittlement phenomenon is to be understood:

1) Mechanism - what is the actual physical process responsible for the embrittlement?

2) Kinetics - what transport process exhibits dominance in determining the rate of the embrittling process?

A complete model of embrittlement must be able to deal with these questions as well as adequately explain existing experimental observations. This investigation addresses each of these questions.
