Material Compatibility Design Considerations for Hydrogen Systems

This course provides guidance on a selection of materials for hydrogen systems. The primary focus is on hydrogen embrittlement of metals, but other material compatibility concerns with metals and polymers are also discussed.

Center for Hydrogen Safety

This course is presented by the Center for Hydrogen Safety (CHS). CHS is a global oriented non-profit dedicated to promoting hydrogen safety and best practices worldwide.

The CHS identifies and addresses concerns regarding the safe use of hydrogen:

  • As a sustainable energy carrier
  • In commercial and industrial applications
  • In hydrogen and fuel cell technologies
  • Hydrogen’s interactions with metals
  • The phenomenon of hydrogen embrittlement
  • The variables affecting the severity of hydrogen embrittlement
  • How to correctly choose a material for use in hydrogen service

Those responsible for selecting hydrogen system materials of construction.

  • Module 1: Material Interactions with Hydrogen 
  • Module 2: Variables Affecting Hydrogen Embrittlement 
  • Module 3: Material Selection for Hydrogen Projects
