ISIJ International, Special Issue on “Toward Suppression of Hydrogen Absorption and Hydrogen Embrittlement for Steels”

 Development and practical application of the high-strength steels have been conducted from viewpoints of structural use as well as save of resource and energy. However, hydrogen embrittlement (HE) is a serious concern with high-strength steels and many industries are strongly desiring countermeasures against HE. In the background, a lot of research activities and forums regarding the HE have been established and held frequently, and they have certainly accumulated a lot of fruits on ‘development of steels resistant to HE’ as well as ‘development of the steel resistant to hydrogen absorption into it’.
 This special issue, therefore, would like to widely call for review papers and the latest research papers on the suppression of hydrogen absorption as well as HE for the steels. Your paper will surely consist of the latest and precious source on suppression of HE to high-strength steels in the issue.
