Stress-Corrosion Cracking: Materials Performance and Evaluation

This book thoroughly covers the phenomenological aspects of stress-corrosion cracking for a wide range of materials. An overview of SCC mechanisms is presented in chapter 1, followed by chapters describing SCC of ferritic and austenitic steels and of nickel, copper, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, and uranium alloys. Also included are chapters on irradiation-assisted stress corrosion, SCC of glasses, ceramics, and weldments, detection and sizing of cracks in boiling water reactors, evaluation of SCC, and failure analysis methods.
