Description

The physical and chemical processes taking place during intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC), in particular the effects of impurities on cracking mechanisms, have been the subjects of a research program sponsored by the Division of Materials Science, Office of Basic Energy Science, U. S. Department of Energy at Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL), operated by Battelle Memorial Institute. Acoustic emission (AE) was brought into the program because of the unique ability of AE methods to detect dynamic microscopic fracture processes. In this paper, the results of these tests are presented.
