Abstract

Subcritical crack growth in a quenched and tempered 4340 steel was studied as a function of hydrogen pressure, (P//H(2)), at 298 K. Under sustained load the threshold stress intensity for crack propagation was dependent on the hydrogen pressure in the pressure range tested, (20 torr less than equivalent to P//H(2) less than equivalent to 760 torr). Crack growth rates as a function of stress intensity, (K), exhibited a K-dependent region (stage I) and a K-independent region (stage II). In stage I the crack growth rate is proportional to P**n//H(2) where n greater than 1, and in stage II the crack growth rate is proportional to the first power of the pressure of the hydrogen gas, (n equals 1). The results are explained in terms of rate determining processes and a model explaining the kinetics of hydrogen enhanced slow crack growth is developed.
