Abstract

Al effects on strain aging and resistance against hydrogen embrittlement were examined in Fe–18Mn–0.6C-based twinning-induced plasticity steels deformed at different strain rates. These steels showed a hydrogen-induced fracture when they were pre-deformed at a strain rate of 1.7×10–6 s–1. This fracture was suppressed by increasing the strain rate and Al content. The two important factors for improving the resistance to hydrogen embrittlement from the viewpoint of material strengthening by strain aging were found to be (1) the suppression of dynamic strain aging by increasing the strain rate and Al content, and (2) the suppression of static strain aging under loading by the Al addition.
