Abstract : The objectives of this research were to understand the mechanism of hydrogen entry into metals and to search for and evaluate various remedial measures to control this process and the subsequent hydrogen embrittlement. Several parallel approaches were pursued to achieve these objectives. A brief description is given in the report on each of these following tasks: Twenty-two research and review papers were published or submitted to journals which describe the progress on these tasks.
