Hoar, T P and Hines, J G (1958) The Stress-Corrosion Cracking of Austentic Stainless Steels in Aqueous Chloride Solution. In: Symposium on Production, Properties and Appications of Alloy and Special Steels, Feb. 1-4, 1956, NML, Jamshedpur.
The stress-corrosion cracking of 18-8 type steels in hot concentrated magnesium chloride solutionshas been studied. There is an induction period, of which the processes are substantially unaffected hvv stress, followed by a period of rapid crack propagation - as shown by measurements of the electrode potential, the mechanical properties and the extension of direct-loaded wire specimens. The indu-ction period is shortened by increase of applied stress and of temperature, and by cold-work on a fully softened material; it may he indefinitely lengthened by cathodic protection of the metal. Crack propagation is normally at rates of 1-4 mm./hr. ; it is not greatly influenced by increase of applied stress, is somewhat accelerated by increase of temperature, and may be slowed down or stopped cntirely by cathodic protection.
