EMBRITTLEMENT OF METALS BY ORGANIC LIQUIDS
IIT RESEARCH INST CHICAGO IL
It is shown that embrittlement of high-strength steel can be revealed by the use of a deeply and sharply notched specimen in tension-tension fatigue. Test results show a relationship between degree of embrittlement and the length of long chain alcohols. In this series water appears to behave as an alcohol. Moreover, the embrittlement by water is essentially independent of PH and the presence of saline solutes.
