A phase field model for hydrogen-assisted fatigue

Dear iMechanicians. I hope that you find the below work interesting - we have developed the first phase field formulation for hydrogen assisted fatigue. Fatigue crack nucleation and growth is predicted for arbitrary geometries, loading histories, and H contents. Virtual S–N curves are also obtained. You can check it here:
