Abstract:

A general but necessarily brief introductory review of the occurrence, phenomenology and mechanistic theories of stress-corrosion cracking in the widest sense of the words, in metals and alloys is provided. Those changes which are produced in the surface layers of metals by machining and grinding operations, and which could affect the stress-corrosion susceptibility are discussed. A review of the published data on the experimentally observed effects of machining and grinding on the stress-corrosion performance of the major alloy systems brasses, low carbon steels, high-strength alloy steels, stainless steels, aluminum alloys and titanium alloy is presented.
