Exposed to various atmospheres during high temperature operations, steels absorb small amounts of hydrogen, which can lead to hydrogen embrittlement HE.
As dissertation 22mnb5 sensitivity increases roughly with strength, the risk of HE becomes a major issue in the development of advanced high strength steels. In this context, the aim of the present thesis is to understand the interactions between atmospheric sources of hydrogen and the particular 22MnB5 hot-stamped steel.
For this purpose, the bare or coated dissertation 22mnb5 was exposed to controlled atmospheres containing hydrogen sources during austenitization heat treatments. Two main sources of hydrogen were used: H2, which allows a fundamental study already well documented in the literature; and H2O, which is likely the active source in the industrial practice.
A specificity of the present work also consists of the use of deuterium, a hydrogen dissertation 22mnb5. A major part of this thesis deals with a critical assessment of the methodology related to the use of deuterium instead of, or combined with, hydrogen in bare 22MnB5 steel. Indeed, despite their isotope nature, hydrogen and deuterium exhibit slight differences called isotope effects.
Furthermore, when they are exposed to each other, exchanges can occur dissertation 22mnb5 them to form hybrid molecules such as HD. Besides these methodological considerations, the specific effect of hydrogen sources is also investigated. Particularly, their related surface oxidation and decarburization effects are scrutinized, while their influence on hydrogen uptake is analysed.
PDF, In order to investigate the effect of deformation temperature on the microstructure of boron steel 22MnB5, uniaxial tensile tests and quenching tests of the steel were performed on the thermo-mechanical simulator Gleeble The deformation te.
Finally, an insight into the hydrogen uptake of Al-Si coated steel is given.
