Hydrogen embrittlement is a process in which hydride-forming metals such as titanium, vanadium, zirconium, tantalum, and niobium become brittle and fracture due to the introduction and subsequent diffusion of hydrogen into the metal1. Practically all metal materials can be damaged by the absorption of hydrogen, if a sufficient quantity can penetrate into the material2. Preventing the occurrence of hydrogen embrittlement requires understanding the source of hydrogen, the process of hydrogen absorption and transportation in metals, the embrittlement mechanism and the visual appearance.
