    Several years ago, members of ASTM Committee B-3, Subcommittee X (now Committee G-1, Subcommittee VI) on Stress Corrosion determined a need for review of work on stress corrosion testing prior to development of standards and criteria for determining stress corrosion susceptibility and behavior of various alloys. The subcommittee established three task groups to accomplish a review of the subject. 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 magnesium alloys.
