Abstract:

Stress corrosion cracking is a failure mode which has occurred with increasing frequency in all sectors of technology. This publication attempts to diminish the incidence of stress corrosion failures by assembling the available practical measures to avoid or minimize the problem and present these measures in a form comprehensible to those persons responsible for the design, fabrication and maintenance of new structures. The alloys covered are copper, aluminum, titanium and nickel alloys and high strength and stainless steels.
