Interrupted tensile tests were performed at the National Institutes of Standards and Technology on AISI 4130 steel in air and in hydrogen at 2600 psi. Investigation by neutron diffraction of the deformed specimens reveal a partitioning of ferrite and martensite phases as a function of applied strain. Dislocation densities of the two individual phases were extracted by analyzing the Bragg peak broadening using a Williamson-Hall approach. A phase transformation from predominantly martensitic steel to ferritic steel was also observed as a function of applied strain. These results demonstrate our ability to fabricate specimens with desired dislocation densities in air and in hydrogen environments, which will be useful in upcoming quasielastic neutron scattering experiments aimed at quantifying hydrogen diffusion as a function of dislocation density.
