Tag: Effect of hydrogen Brittle fracture

Brittle fracture may occur in high-strength steels, particularly under the influ- ence of rapidly applied tensile stress. This is the case in prestressing steels when there is a fracture under loads below those corresponding to the permissible pre- strain, due to: · stress concentration in local notches (e.g., corrosion pits) · high stressing speed and low temperature and/or · embrittlement
