Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) occurs on service and process pipelines and pressure vessels, especially those dealing with Hydrogen and related fluids, or located in hydrogen-rich atmospheres. HIC results in failure and leakages in critical components over time. Evaluation of Pipeline and Pressure Vessel Steels for resistance to HIC
, involves testing steel plates and pipes, both newly constructed (before installation) and in-service, as per NACE-TM-0284 Standard
, to determine resistance to hydrogen induced corrosion.
