Influence of Drawing Straining Path on Hydrogen Damage of Prestressing Steel Wires
Residual stress and strain states, produced during cold drawing, play a key role in hydrogen embrittlement (HE) of prestressing steel wires, because of hydrogen accumulation in certain places of the material is affected by stress and strains fields. Taking into account that the drawing straining path directly affects both residual stress and plastic strain distribution, the aim of the present paper is to clarify the influence of drawing straining path in the residual state and, consequently, its influence on the HE process of prestressing steel wires.
