Hydrogen Effects on the Spall Strength and Fracture Characteristics of Amorphous Fe-SiB Alloy at Very High Strain Rates

A novel approach is suggested, using laser-induced shock wave measurements to estimate the effects of cathodic hydrogen charging on the mechanical properties and fracture characteristics of materials. This approach is applied to (1) determine the dominant mechanism of hydrogen embrittlement (HE) in an amorphous Fe80B11Si9 alloy; and (2) estimate the effects… CONTINUE READING
