Coupled hydrogen and phosphorous induced initiation of internal cracks in a large 18MnNiMo5 component

Abstract : This study analyzed a crack in a scrapped 18MnNiMo5 80-tonne shell. The root cause of crack formation was the low fracture toughness caused by a combination of a high hydrogen content and phosphorous segregation, caused by an inappropriate heat treatment. Cracking initiated on MnS inclusion clusters enabled by hydrogen desorption at the MnS/matrix interfaces. Crack propagation was due to the internal hydrogen pressure causing the crack tip stress intensity factor to exceed the locally-reduced fracture toughness. This new hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) mechanism can be designated as Hydrogen Induced Localised Damage (HILD). Appropriate process controls can eliminate such defects.
