    Abstract

    Equipment and procedures used in performing tension, fracture mechanics, fatigue, and creep tests on metal specimens in high-pressure hydrogen are described. Important test parameters, in particular, hydrogen purity and methods of achieving high purity are considered. The interpretation and use of data obtained from the various tests in high-pressure hydrogen are discussed.
