High-strength steels with a tensile strength above 150 ksi (approximately 33 HRC or above) are considered susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement failures. Material processing, including forming operations and heat treatment, can contribute to the susceptibility of steel components to hydrogen embrittlement failure. This presentation will provide an overview of material processing operations that contribute to the hydrogen embrittlement failure mechanism. In addition, case studies of hydrogen embrittlement failures for which material processing operations had significant or unusual contributions to the fractures will be discussed.
