Some Techniques Used in the Study of Stress Corrosion Cracking


Techniques used at the National Bureau of Standards in the study of stress corrosion cracking of metals are described together with precautions taken in these investigations. Especially designed specimens of low-carbon and stainless steels and a titanium alloy and supplementary techniques for obtaining data as to the mechanism of the stress corrosion process are also described. A specimen and technique recently used to determine whether hydrogen plays a part in the delayed failures of high-strength steels in chloride solutions is described.
