As an application of the phase field model for crack propagation in elastic body, chemical-diffuse crack growth model with the effect of the hydrogen embrittlement is considered. Numerical results show the difference of crack path between data with the effects and data without the effect. Temporal evolution of the normalized difference of phase field depict the time when start the difference of crack path.
