Understanding the mechanisms controlling stress corrosion cracking through high-resolution characterization

Abstract:

Austenitic alloys have been extensively used in the nuclear industry as structural components due to their combination of excellent mechanical properties and high corrosion resistance. Although these alloys have a good service record, many can become susceptible to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) under pressurized water reactor (PWR) primary water conditions. After several decades of study, a considerable number of factors have been revealed that affect SCC susceptibility, such as material...
