Abstract:

The problem of the stress-corrosion cracking of high-strength steels in contrasted with stress corrosion in other metals. The implications of hydrogen embrittlement and especially of brittle fracture to interpretations of stress-corrosion cracking tests on high-strength steels are summarized. Test methods are briefly described, and the results of recent studies as reported in the literature are summarized topically. A discussion of the meaning of these findings is given, together with recommendations regarding the further development of test concepts. An annotated bibliography of thirty-six entries is appended.
