Effect of hydrogen on evolution of deformation microstructure in low-carbon steel with ferrite microstructure

Okada, Kazuho*; Shibata, Akinobu*; Gong, W.   ; Tsuji, Nobuhiro*

In this study, the deformation microstructure of hydrogen-charged ferritic-pearlitic 2Mn-0.1C steel was characterized using SEM-BSE, SEM-EBSD, TEM, and neutron diffraction. The microscopic mechanism of hydrogen-related quasi-cleavage fracture along the ${011}$ planes was also discussed. It was found that hydrogen increased the relative velocity of screw dislocations to edge dislocations, leading to a tangled dislocation morphology, even at the initial stage of deformation (strain = 0.03). In addition, the density of screw dislocations at the later stage of deformation (strain = 0.20) increased in the presence of hydrogen. Based on the experimental results, it is proposed that a high density of vacancies accumulated along ${011}$ slip planes by jog-dragging of screw dislocations, and coalescence of the accumulated vacancies led to the hydrogen-related quasi-cleavage fracture along the {011} slip planes.
