The materials and components compatibility program element applies Sandia’s core capability in hydrogen embrittlement to address fundamental questions about the mechanical behavior of materials when exposed to high-pressure gaseous hydrogen. The cornerstone of Sandia’s core capability in hydrogen embrittlement is the Hydrogen Effects on Materials Laboratory where specialized assets reside for conducting mechanical testing of materials with concurrent exposure to gaseous hydrogen at pressures from 1 MPa to greater than 100 MPa.
