Stress-Corrosion Cracking: Materials Performance and Evaluation (Second Edition)
Stress Corrosion Cracking: Materials Performance and Evaluation, Second Edition, explains how and why stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) occurs, how to determine if it will be an issue in a given design, and how to recognize its effects in compromised materials and component failures. It describes the mechanical and chemical interactions that contribute to SCC and their role in crack initiation, propagation, and fracture. It examines the nature of SCC in a wide range of materials, including ferritic and austenitic steels; nickel, copper, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, and uranium alloys; glasses and ceramics; and stainless steel pipe welds. It also discusses irradiation- assisted SCC and provides information on SCC evaluation and test methods. The book concludes with a section on failure analysis.
