The effect of pre-strain on the hydrogen embrittlement of Nb-free and Nb-added low-carbon steels with ferrite-pearlite structure was investigated in this study. After the steels were electrochemically charged with hydrogen, slow-strain rate tensile (SSRT) tests were conducted on them to examine hydrogen embrittlement behavior. The SSRT test results revealed that..... More
