Abstract : A technique was developed and the apparatus built for a fast, nondestructive method for the determination of hydrogen content of large specimen. Also, a study of the basic factors which determine the solubility and the rate of diffusion of hydrogen in metals was undertaken. The approach was to change systematically the metallurgical and physical properties of iron by forming binary alloys of variable composition, and to study the resulting changes in hydrogen diffusion rate and solubility.
