Effect of sub-surface hydrogen on intrinsic crack tip plasticity in aluminium

Abstract

The effects of sub-surface hydrogen and mixed mode loading on dislocation emission in aluminium are studied using a combination of techniques including: crack simulations with an empirical interatomic potential, generalised stacking fault energy (GSF) calculations, with empirical interactions and Density Functional Theory, and the model by Rice which links the critical stress intensity factor to the unstable stacking energy. The crack orientation is {111} 112 and the loading is composed of a moderate traction along 111 and a shear along 112 , such that Shockley partials are emitted along the crack plane. The role of the relaxations around the H atoms and of the concentration of H in the glide plane, in the GSF calculation, are revealed by comparing Rice's model to the results of brute force simulations. The enhanced GSF is then calculated ab initio. The conclusion is a large decrease of the critical load to emit a dislocation, due to the displacement transverse to the glide direction. The effect of sub-surface hydrogen is negligible with respect to the mechanical one.
