Part of FTI’s advanced continuing education fastener program, Understanding Hydrogen Embrittlement in Fasteners is a one and a half day workshop with instructor Salim Brahimi, a leading researcher in hydrogen embrittlement. This course will provide a broad understanding of hydrogen embrittlement with a particular focus on the conditions leading to hydrogen embrittlement failure of high strength mechanical fasteners.

Also included in your registration fee: Salim Brahimi’s Fundamentals of Hydrogen Embrittlement in Steel Fasteners. This recently published paper is part of Salim’s doctoral thesis and is the result of over seven years of scientific research on the subject.
Threaded mechanical fasteners and bolted joints are deceptively simple components but damage resulting in loss of integrity or failure can occur by a complex interaction of material characteristics, environmental conditions, manufacturing flaws, installation conditions, and joint design criteria.
The most unpredictable failures result from hydrogen embrittlement. The consequences of fastener failures can range from minimal to catastrophic, even resulting in loss of life. The prevention of failure is therefore a fundamental preoccupation for designers, application engineers, fastener manufacturers and distributors alike.
Understanding Hydrogen Embrittlement in Fasteners is designed to provide practical information and encourage an open discussion aimed at understanding how to avoid hydrogen embrittlement failures using real-life examples.
Who should attend:
For anyone who works with mechanical fasteners either as a manufacturer, tier supplier, distributor or OEM, Understanding Hydrogen Embrittlement in Fasteners is a must. There are no prerequisites and the material is suitable for people with technical and non-technical backgrounds.
