Abstract: First principles density functional theory was used to calculate the phonon spectrum of a bcc iron lattice with interstitial hydrogen to find the vibrational contribution to the Helmholtz free energy, F. Clear differences between high (Fe:H=1:1) and low (Fe:H=16:1) concentration conditions were observed, particularly in connection with the proportion of H occupancy of octahedral and tetrahedral sites in the lattice. The variation in the diffusion coefficient with temperature was estimated by applying a simple mixing rule to these populations and factoring in the temperature-dependence of F. This prediction proved to be in good agreement with experimental results reported by McLellan (Acta Metal. 31, 961).
