Abstract:

About 200 liquids and solutions representative of 24 categories of organic and metallo-organic species have been chosen to test for embrittling capability on a high strength steel and a high strength aluminum alloy. Embrittlement is being measured in terms of loss of tensile strength and ductility, tendency to failure under sus tained loads at the yield point and decrease in fatigue life under tension-tension stress condi tions and deep machined notches. Thus far embrittlement clearly relevant to the existence of an organic liquid on the stressed surface has not been discovered.
