Mechanical Testing and Evaluation
Evaluation of Environmentally Assisted Crack Growth
This article describes the types, mechanism, and typical test methods along with their configurations for the evaluation of hydrogen embrittlement, stress-corrosion cracking, and corrosion fatigue with an emphasis on fracture mechanics methodologies for metals. An overview on the environmentally assisted crack growth of polymers is also included. The article details the evaluation of nanoscale environmental effects and indentation-induced cohesive cracking. It also provides information on scanning probe microscopy.
