Abstract

This article details factors that have been used for evaluating the susceptibility of alloys to stress-corrosion cracking. Many considerations impacting the validity and accuracy of information gathered from laboratory testing programs are reviewed. The article highlights the main characteristics of probability distributions, such as normal distribution, log-normal distribution, exponential distribution, Poisson distribution, and extreme-value distribution. It also provides information on the statistical concepts to produce effective test programs.
