Abstract

This work is based on previous research on the one-dimensional (1D) analysis of the hydrogen diffusion process, and proposes a numerical approach to simulate the phenomenon in two-dimensional (2D) situations, e.g., near notches. The weighted residual method was used to solve numerically the differential equations set out when the geometry was discretized through the application of the finite element technique. This developed procedure can be a suitable practical tool to analyze hydrogen embrittlement phenomena in structural materials. Keywords: numerical modelling, weighted residual method, hydrogen diffusion, axisymmetric notch.
