On the Role of Stress, Strain and Diffusion in Dissolution – Condensation Mechanism of Liquid Metal Embrittlement
The models of liquid –metal embrittlement (LME) which explore the concept of fast stress/strain induced liquid phase diffusion as the major factor responsible for acceleration of subcritical cracks are overviewed and refined. The models are used for further analysis of several focus issues in the LME kinetics.
