Abstract:

The review presents a detailed summary of the current understanding of the phenomenon of corrosion fatigue in gaseous and in aqueous environments. The effects of gaseous environments at low and at elevated temperatures and the mechanisms which govern fatigue crack initiation and propagation in the presence and in the absence of reaction films are discussed. The effects of aggressive aqueous solutions on fatigue crack initiation and propagation in ferrous and non ferrous alloys, and the effectiveness of protective measures are treated in detail and a critical review of previously proposed and currently accepted models is presented.
