In this paper, the response of three medium and high-strength steels to hydrogen embrittlement is analyzed by means of the quasi-non-destructive test known as the Small Punch Test (SPT). SPT tests on notched specimens under static load are carried out, applying Lacaclle's methodology to estimate the fracture toughness for crack initiation, comparing the results to KIEAC fracture toughness obtained from C(T) precracked specimens tested in the same environment; SPT showed good correlation to standard tests. A novel expression was proposed to define the parameter KIEAC-SP as the suitable one to estimate the fracture toughness for crack initiation in hydrogen embrittlement conditions by Small Punch means, obtaining good accuracy in its estimations. Finally, Slow Rate Small Punch Tests (SRSPT) are proposed as a more efficient alternative, introducing an order of magnitude for the adequate rate to be employed.
