    Abstract

    A state-of-the-art survey was performed on slow strain rate (SSR) testing methods for the Materials Technology Institute of the Chemical Process Industries, Inc. (MTI). The goal of the survey was to determine if SSR testing methods yield useful data in predicting stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) susceptibility of metals used in the chemical process industry (CPI). The information was obtained by searching the literature and by sending out questionnaires to relevant sources. It was concluded that most reported cases of anomalous behavior with the SSR test technique can be attributed to inadequate control or measurement of strain rate or potential, which are the major controlling parameters for a specific material-environment combination.
