The final cause of failure was concluded to be cracking that developed during the installation of the new shroud ring. Stress-relief heat treatments were recommended to be performed to reduce residual...

... . Austenitic stainless steels are most susceptible to polythionic acid SCC (PASCC) in sensitized condition. The crack propagation in this case takes place by intergranular mode. However, if the steel is properly heat treated and not sensitized, PASCC by transgranular mode of crack propagation is also possible...
