Discussion of the mechanism(s) for HA-FCG in pipeline steels is complicated by the fact that neither the mechanism for fatigue crack growth, nor the mechanism for hydrogen embrittlement (HE) under monotonic loading in these materials, is completely understood.
Both HIC and SSC belong to hydrogen embrittlement phenomena.
The first part of volume two reviews the mechanism of hydrogen embrittlement, including absorption, diffusion and trapping of hydrogen in metals.
Frequently, steels are plated with Cu or Cd to prevent hydrogen absorption and it has been found that if the samples are not hydrogen free before they are plated then hydrogen embrittlement may occur.
It allows applications to obtain the highest crash performance, while ensuring complete resistance to hydrogen embrittlement.
Part one covers the mechanisms of SCC and hydrogen embrittlement, while the focus of part two is on methods of testing for SCC in metals.

Industrial experience has repeatedly shown that when this attack occurs, hydrogen embrittlement rather than metal loss from corrosion is the predominant failure mechanism for tantalum materials.
To address the issue of hydrogen embrittlement of conventional tantalum alloys and ensure reliable performance, H.
