Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
This article describes the incubation, nucleation, and propagation of stress-corrosion cracking and how to evaluate it using standard tests. It discusses constant-strain, constant-load, bending, and uniaxial tension testing and how they compare when evaluating smooth and precracked test specimens under elastic-strain, plastic-strain, and residual-stress conditions. The article provides guidance on specimen selection and preparation, strain rate, and test equipment. It also examines service and laboratory test environments and provides detailed information on how to test various steels and alloys and how to interpret test results.
