A correlation between hydrogen concentration (C0) and the critical stress intensity factor for propagation of hydrogen-related cracks has been established by fracture mechanical testing of CT-specimens for the heat affected zone of an X-70 pipeline steel. This has been compared with field measurements of the hydrogen uptake by cathodically protected steel exposed in heavy clay and peat type soils.
