Hydrogen Embrittlement of Galvanized Steel

(2000)

I am doing a failure analysis on a galvanized quench and tempered steel pipe(.22C/1.32Mn). I have read where the pickling/acid bath can cause hydrogen embrittlement in high-strength steels. Is it common to see such failure due to hydrogen embrittlement in quench and tempered steels (Yield strength = 125 ksi)?

Acid bath: 10% Sulfuric acid, 160F
