  • Our paper"Assessment of the impact of hydrogen on the stress developed ahead of a fatigue crack"is out in Acta Materialia

    The microstructure generated in a low carbon steel under cyclic loading in air and a 40 MPa gaseous hydrogen environment has been compared as a function of distance from the crack tip. The presence of hydrogen resulted in the formation of a smaller and more equiaxed dislocation cell structure that extended further from the crack tip […]

    Dislocation loops in NiCo and NiFe, both being single-phase, equimolar solid solution alloys, are generated by in situ high-voltage electron irradiation and characterized inside a transmission electron microscope. In addition to the different defect growth rates, the two alloys present dislocation loops with distinct shape evolution and element segregation, which reflect the element-sensitive, intrinsic properties […]
