Micromechanics of stress corrosion cracking in 304 stainless steel and Ni Alloy 600

Abstract:

The current thesis takes a step forward into understanding the intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) by applying a relatively new micro-mechanical technique to look at the crack growth rate of individual grain boundaries in 304 stainless steel (SS) and to measure fracture toughness for different grain boundaries in Ni Alloy 600. In addition, a model is tested and proposed that could predict crack initiation in 304 SS. Pentagonal cross-section cantilevers 5 μm wide by 25 μm long w...
