Hydrogen trapping in an API 5L X60 steel

Bruzzoni, P.; Ramunni, V. P.; Rivera, P. Castano


Electrochemical hydrogen permeation tests were performed on an API 5L X60 steel to study trapping and diffusion properties in the as-received (AR) and in a cold-rolled (CR) state, at 30, 50 and 70 degrees C. Hydrogen trapping was characterized by assuming saturable traps in local equilibrium. Binding energies (Delta G) and trap densities (N) were determined by fitting a trapping theoretical model to experimental data. Both conditions AR and CR present a high density of weak traps vertical bar Delta G vertical bar 35 kJ/mol, namely N = 1.4 x 10(-5) and 7.9 x 10(-4) mol/cm(3) respectively. Strong trapping sites were detected (-72 Delta G -57 kJ/mol) and their densities increased markedly after cold-rolling. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
