Post-Hydrogen Permeation Characterization of V-Based Crystalline Alloy Membranes
The surface preparation and hydrogen embrittlement in particular are research challenges facing the practical application of vanadium alloy membranes. These two issues are addressed by surface characterization and fracture analysis in order to find the reasons why delamination and crack failures occur during hydrogen permeation. Post-failure analysis of the hydrogen-induced cracking membrane specimen suggests a new failure mechanism for hydrogen embrittlement.
