Hydrogen in metals - university internship at the RUB

No area of engineering is safe from the little fiend, element No.1 of the periodic table. Its small size allows it to easily penetrate the metal lattice and enables it to diffuse rapidly, which can lead to pores, fisheyes and flakes. Delayed cracking is typical and can occur after hours and days, causing bolt heads to be blown off or springs to break. Delayed cracking after months and years can be due to cathodic stress corrosion cracking and lead, for example, to the collapse of bridge structures.

The seminar deals with all areas of technology in which such hydrogen problems occur. The necessary fundamentals are covered, as well as the recognition of hydrogen damage and analytical proof.

The university practical course is aimed at technicians and engineers who wish to extend their knowledge of investigation methods with regard to quality assurance and damage analysis.

Scientific director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Pohl, Ruhr University Bochum
