Famous Failures: Hydrogen Embrittlement - Potential Failure Cause on Plated Parts
This webinar will summarize hydrogen embrittlement, what can cause it, and how it can be prevented. Embrittling can cause a part to fail under stresses well below the expected material strength and is virtually undetectable using current NDE techniques. This phenomenon will be explored by studying a Bell 222U Helicopter failure that occurred in Texas in 2010. In this webinar, we will discuss what conditions can lead to hydrogen embrittlement occurring, how it causes a part to fail, and typical prevention techniques used. These topics will then be related back to a real-world failure. Register now!
