Abstract:

Results are given of a systematic survey of the stress-corrosion cracking behavior of titanium and certain of its alloys in such environments as pure organic liquids, organic liquid-bromine mixtures, methanol-water-acid mixtures, methanol vapor, and liquid mercury. Stress-corrosion behavior is measured by time-to-failure under static tensile load and by reduction in ultimate elongation under dynamic tension. The effects are described of such variables as water constration, bromine concentration, applied electrical potential, and strain rate.
