Hydrogen Effects in Non-ferrous Alloys: Discussion


This is a transcript of the discussion session on the effects of hydrogen in the non-ferrous alloys of zirconium and titanium, which are anisotropic hydride-forming metals. The four talks focus on the hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms that affect zirconium and titanium components, which are respectively used in the nuclear and aerospace industries. Two specific mechanisms are delayed hydride cracking and stress corrosion cracking.
This article is a transcription of the recorded discussion of the session ‘Hydrogen in non-ferrous alloys’ at the Royal Society Discussion Meeting, Challenges of Hydrogen in Metals, 16–18 January 2017. The text is approved by the contributors. M.P. transcribed the session. M.A.S. assisted in the preparation of the manuscript.
