Passive State Degradation of Stainless Steel Welds
Three types of corrosion attack frequently suffered by type Cr18Ni10 stainless steel in the heat-affected zone of welds were studied – knife-line, fusion-line, and fissure corrosion. Possible mechanisms and selected preventative measures were discussed in the light of microstructural findings.
