The stress corrosion of a sensitised stainless steel

Subtitle:
a study of the effect of low frequency cyclic loading on the process of stress assisted corrosion in "sensitised" 20% Cr, 25% Ni, 0.7% Nb stainless steel, whilst in HNO³ solution
Abstract:

The following work divides into two parts:

a: a study of the effect of stress on the inter-granular stress assisted corrosion attack of sensitised 20% Cr, 25% Ni, 0.7% Nb in HNO3 environments. This problem was suggested by the C.E.G.B. and relates to the potential corrosion problems of AGR fuel cladding during storage after use. The aim of this work was therefore to determine how metallurgical condition, test potential and mechanical test variables affect corrosion behav...
