As hydrogen fuel cell technologies achieve market penetration, there is a growing need to characterize a range of structural metals that are used in the hydrogen environments that are encountered in gaseous hydrogen fuel systems. A review of existing data show that hydrogen can significantly accelerate fatigue crack growth of many common structural metals; however, comprehensive characterization of the effects of hydrogen on fatigue properties is generally lacking from the literature, even for structural metals that have been used extensively in high-pressure gaseous hydrogen environments. This report provides new testing data on the effects of hydrogen on fatigue of structural metals that are commonly employed in high-pressure gaseous hydrogen.
