The work was designed firstly to examine the possibility of the existence of a universal mechanism of transgranular stress corrosion cracking, originally postulated by Robertson and Tetelman, and later, when such a mechanism was substantially disproved, to examine possible cracking mechanisms in various alloy systems of interest. The experimental techniques employed included the determination of times to complete fracture under stress corrosion conditions, potentiostatic studies of polarization phenomena, etc., and electron microscope investigations of dislocation configurations and estimates of the related stacking fault energies.
