Abstract

Alloys of the VT6 type are used for parts operating in the temperature range from 450 -500°C to cryogenic temperatures. At room temperature and below, alloys of this type can develop hydrogen embrittlement. This paper is devoted to the effect of hydrogen on the mechanical properties of the alloy for temperatures ranging from room to that of liquid helium.
