International Conference on Metals and Hydrogen
This fourth SteelyHydrogen conference provides a unique environment to share and exchange experiences on the link between metals and the various aspects of hydrogen: hydrogen-microstructure interactions, hydrogen embrittlement, hydrogen detection, etc. Since its first edition, the spirit of the conference has been in keeping a balance between fundamental and industrial aspects.
Whereas early edition focussed on steel substrates, since the 2018 edition, the scope was broadened to other metals such as Al, Ni and Ti, with revealing scientific contributions and new applications being addressed.
Given today’s interest in hydrogen as energetic vector, and the maturity of some technologies becoming reality, the SteelyHydrogen forum in 2022 could not have been better timed. Therefore, this edition will also be dedicated to the role of hydrogen in the global energy transition. Particular attention will be drawn to material challenges.
As such, the scientific scope of the conference can be summarised by the following topic categories:
