Understanding and Modeling of Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC)

Abstract:

Article Preview

Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is a brittle fracture of a ductile material under severe environment. Due to the complexity of mechano-chemical degradation during SCC formation, the scientific community is still far from the complete understanding of this phenomenon. Moreover, it is commonly misunderstood that polymeric materials is ‘SCC-free’, but it should be noticed that SCC is universal phenomenon for all engineering materials including polymers. In this paper, the similarity and differences of SCC in different materials, such as carbon steels and engineering polymers, are observed and reported. The SCC modeling in carbon steels and engineering polymers is also compared and discussed.
