International Conference on Metals and Hydrogen

October 11, 2022 - October 13, 2022

Steel & Hydrogen

The fourth SteelyHydrogen conference provides a unique environment to share and exchange experiences on the link between metals and the various aspects of hydrogen: hydrogen-microstructure interactions, hydrogen embrittlement, hydrogen detection, etc. Since its first edition, the spirit of the conference has been in keeping a balance between fundamental and industrial aspects.

This edition will be dedicated to the role of hydrogen in the global energy transition. Particular attention will be drawn to material challenges.

As such, the scientific scope of the conference can be summarised by the following topic categories:

  • Hydrogen embrittlement: effect of hydrogen on mechanical properties

    • Aqueous environment
    • Gas environment
    • HIC & Stress Sulphide Cracking (SSC)
    • Metallurgical influences
    • Mitigation actions (microstructural design, coatings, etc.)
    • Mechanisms
  • Modelling the hydrogen-metal interactions and/or the hydrogen embrittlement from atomic to meso-scale

  • Advanced methods to characterise hydrogen

  • Hydrogen-metal interactions: hydrogen activity, diffusion, trapping, etc.

  • Surfaces and coatings for metallic substrates in hydrogen environment

  • Industrial hydrogen challenges

  • Future material challenges for hydrogen applications

  • Other
