About MultiHy

MultiHy aims to develop advanced, industrially-relevant numerical models for hydrogen embrittlement. The primary focus of the project is the description of hydrogen transport in advanced materials with complex microstructures. By focusing on hydrogen transport the project aims to develop a robust, transferrable methodology for predicting the susceptibility of materials to hydrogen embrittlement based on detailed microstructural information using computational methods. The models will be demonstrated by investigating the role of microstructure in three contrasting industrial case studies involving hydrogen embrittlement. The goals of the project will be achieved by development of a multiscale modelling framework that will enable the extraction and propagation of information pertaining to key microstructural features and defects from the atomistic up to the component scales, supported at all levels by dedicated experimental measurements.
