Hydrogen Embrittlement and Material Selection

Free Webinar
​​​​​​​September 21, 2022 - 4 pm in Berlin, 7 am in LA, 11 pm in Tokio

A selection of suitable materials is critical for the safety of any hydrogen application. Most engineers know that hydrogen embrittlement and other hydrogen-specific damaging mechanisms of various metallic materials represent serious threats. Nevertheless, a handful of people have understood the highly complex physics of hydrogen-materials interactions to predict and prevent hydrogen embrittlement and other hydrogen damages.

Blending hydrogen into existing natural gas pipelines and hydrogen transport is now being actively considered as part of the decarbonization strategy in Europe, Australia, and the United States. The key impediment is the possibility of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen-induced cracking of steel pipelines.

In 2019, Professor Milos B. Djukic from the University of Belgrade in Serbia published a comprehensive critical review article on “The synergistic action and interplay of hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms in steels and iron: Localized plasticity and decohesion“, which established the unified HELP+HEDE model for the synergistic action of hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms in steel and iron, proposed by the same group of authors in 2015, and now widely accepted. This article reached 150+ citations. It is the most cited article in the Engineering Fracture Mechanics journal published since 2019.

In this free webinar, which will be available for free download, Prof. Milos B. Djukic will summarize the current state of the art in hydrogen embrittlement understanding, and he will explain:

✓ What is hydrogen embrittlement?
✓ Hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms in steel and their synergy.
✓ Hydrogen embrittlement effects on mechanical properties.
✓ The problems of hydrogen embrittlement in pipelines transporting hydrogen-gas mixture.
✓ How can hydrogen embrittlement be predicted and avoided?
✓ Summary about materials, hydrogen applications, hydrogen embrittlement, and safety.

During the Q&A, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions and get answers from one of the best hydrogen materials scientists in the world.

About the speaker: Professor Milos B. Djukic from the University of Belgrade in Serbia is the leading expert in hydrogen embrittlement, material selection, and welding technology. He has published more than 100 scientific articles on hydrogen damage and embrittlement, corrosion, and materials science. He is a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy.
