This article begins with a discussion on the classification of hydrogen embrittlement and likely sources of hydrogen and stress. The article describes several hydrogen embrittlement test methods, including cantilever beam tests, wedge-opening load tests, contoured double-cantilever beam tests, rising step-load tests, and slow strain rate tensile tests. It also describes the interpretation of test results and how to control hydrogen embrittlement during production.
