This investigation, through experiments on thresholds as a function of temperature and the previous studies of others, has led to a physically accurate description of the fracture mechanism and an accurate quantitative model. It accounts for temperature, solubility, and hydrogen concentration effects in the presence of an external stress. These factors control the effective stress intensity at which hydrides form at the tip of a crack.
