Scientific and Technical Section


On the basis of a synthetic theory based on the application of principal postulates of the structural-analytic theory of strength, we construct a mathematical model of hydrogenated polycrystals, which can be regarded as a phenomenological model with improved physical basis. The concentration of hydrogen is taken into account with certain restrictions. However, even with these restrictions, we manage not only to reflect the qualitative picture but also to give a quantitative description of the deformational behavior of a hydrogenated material in the process of its cooling through of zone of phase transformations.
