Abstract:

The stress-corrosion susceptibility of Aluminum Alloy 5456 in the H321 temper was investigated as a function of longitudinal, long transverse, and short transverse plate orientations. The alloy was found to be subject to pitting attack but immune to stress-corrosion cracking in flowing seawater at ambient temperature.
