Hydrogen embrittlement is known to be induced by a local increase in hydrogen concentration in materials. Therefore, it is important to elucidate the mechanism of hydrogen concentration behavior, which is the cause of hydrogen embrittlement, to prevent hydrogen embrittlement. One of authors proposed a numerical analysis method that couples stress analysis using the finite element method and hydrogen diffusion analysis using the finite difference method. This analysis has clarified that there is the effect of loading waveforms on hydrogen concentration behavior. In this study, hydrogen diffusion concentration behavior analysis under fatigue conditions with an overload was performed, and it was shown that hydrogen concentration may be enhanced by an overload.
