    Abstract

    A recent survey by ASTM Committee G-1 revealed that nearly one hundred laboratories are engaged in stress corrosion testing. This survey was part of a task group effort to determine the state-of-the-art concerning stress corrosion testing, organized into three areas: specimen design; test environments and duration; and data evaluation and reporting. The committee decided to provide a forum at which current practices would be presented and discussed by those active in the field. Papers were solicited from engineers and scientists who use these tests for specification purposes, for material selection guides, and for design and use criteria. Theoretical papers were included where the theory was shown to influence test methodology. The theme of the conference was the development of reproducible, standardized test methods. Nearly all structural metals were covered: high strength steels, stainless steels, and alloys of aluminum, copper, magnesium, and zirconium. Some new methods were fully discussed, including the precracked cantilever beam and tests on joints, such as bolts and weldments.
