Abstract

The influence of cathodic hydrogen charging on some mechanical properties of copper was studied. Hydrogen charging was found to decrease both the ultimate tensile strength and the failure strain of copper. The surface layers of copper were hardened, but they recovered to their prior hardness with time passed after hydrogen charging.
