    Several years ago it became evident to members of ASTM Committee B-3, Subcommittee X (now Committee G-1, Subcommittee VI) on Stress Corrosion that a review of the reported information and, where available, work in progress on stress corrosion testing was needed. This was considered essential as a precursor to the proposed development of standards and criteria for determining the stress corrosion susceptibility and behavior of various alloys. The subcommittee established three task groups to accomplish a review of the subject. The task group assignments were as follows: TG-1, sample selection and method of stress; TG-2, environments under which stress corrosion occurs and duration of tests; and TG-3, reporting of stress corrosion results and interpretation of results. This report is part of the TG-2 assignment. It concerns a review of reported stress corrosion investigations relating to the effects of various environments on specific high-strength steels.
