Research and Markets: Gaseous Hydrogen Embrittlement of Materials in Energy Technologies: Mechanisms, Modelling and Future Developments


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Gaseous hydrogen embrittlement of materials in energy technologies: Mechanisms, modelling and future developments" to their offering.

This important two-volume book reviews the problem of degradation of metals and other materials exposed to hydrogen. The first part of volume two reviews the mechanism of hydrogen embrittlement, including absorption, diffusion and trapping of hydrogen in metals. Part two discusses ways of modelling hydrogen-induced damage and assessing service life. The final section in the book assesses future trends in research.

Key Topics Covered:

Part 1 Mechanisms of hydrogen interactions with metals: Hydrogen adsorption on the surface of metals

- Analysing hydrogen in metals: bulk thermal desorption spectroscopy (TDS) methods

- Analysing hydrogen in metals: surface techniques

- Hydrogen diffusion and trapping in metals

- Control of hydrogen embrittlement of metals by chemical inhibitors and coatings

- The role of grain boundaries in hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) of steels

- Influence of hydrogen on the behavior of dislocations.

Part 2 Modelling hydrogen embrittlement: Modelling hydrogen induced damage mechanisms in metals

- Hydrogen effects on the plasticity of face-centred cubic (ffc) crystals

- Continuum mechanics modelling of hydrogen embrittlement

- Degradation models for hydrogen embrittlement

- Effect of inelastic strain on hydrogen-assisted fracture of metals

- Development of service life prognosis systems for hydrogen energy devices.

Part 3 The future: Gaseous hydrogen embrittlement of high-performance metals in energy systems: Future trends.
