Abstract : This final report summarizes research carried out during the course of a program directed toward evaluating the factors affecting the absorption of hydrogen by iron and steels during exposure to aqueous solutions. The effects of deposits, barrier-type layers and certain electrolyte additions were investigated. An add-on project was directed toward evaluating the mechanism of protection of Cu10Ni alloy in simulated seawater. (Author)
