In some cases, where constant load tests are used, environmental cracks can initiate but not propagate through the entire cross-section of the specimen. Touchstone Engineers have experience with Stress-Corrosion Testing and are able to accurately determine when the specimen fractured and obtain a precise cracking time. Stress Corrosion Cracking of Stainless Steel – The example shown indicates many intersecting, branched cracks with a transgranular propagation mode.
ASTM G38 – Standard Practice for Making and Using C-Ring Stress-Corrosion Test Specimens
This practice covers the features of design and machining, and procedures for stressing, exposing, and inspecting C-ring type of stress-corrosion test specimens. SCC is the brittle cracking of a metal due y38 the result of combined effects from localized corrosion and tensile stress. Stress Corrosion Cracking Stress Corrosion Testing Description SCC is the brittle cracking of a metal due to the result of combined qstm from localized corrosion and tensile stress. The location of cracking was limited to a region covered by an elastomeric sleeve.
In many cases, SCC involves the combination of tensile stress and local anodic attack which dictate the period of incubation prior to the initiation of SCC.
Therefore, to conduct tests for SCC, either mechanical or electrochemical means are often utilized to promote localized corrosion so that the inherent susceptibility of the material can be determined.
ASTM G – practice for evaluation of scc resistance of metals and alloys in 3.
Stress of principal interest in the C-ring specimen is the circumferential stress because this stress is not uniform. There are also transverse stresses present; however, these stresses may decrease with decreasing width to thickness and increasing diameter to thickness ratios. Care must be taken during machining so that specimens are not overheated, are not plastically deformed and do not develop residual stresses in the metal surface.
Determination of the cracking time may be subjective due to the visual examination. An analysis is given of the state and distribution of stresses in the C-ring.

Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. This local environment resulted in enhanced localized susceptibility of the material to pitting corrosion and SCC.
Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: In this case, however, the alloy was reported to be resistant to SCC in the NaCl brine service environment. The example shown indicates many intersecting, branched cracks with a transgranular propagation mode. Prevention or Remedial Action. Analysis of the elastomer indicate that it was not the correct grade and chemical degradation had occurred in service to produce organic acids and sulfur compounds.
Such techniques include the use of slow strain rate, cyclic slow strain rate, fracture mechanics and electrochemical potential control. When the specimen is stressed by measuring the strain on the tension surface of the c-ring, the strain gage should be positioned in the middle of the arc in order to indicate the maximum strain.
These are typical of stress corrosion cracking SCC in austenitic stainless steel. Under the sleeve, evidence of severe general and pitting corrosion were found and evidence of sulfur-containing corrosion products.
Astn G – practice for preparation and use of bent-beam scc test specimens. Prevention or Remedial Action lower either applied or residual tensile stresses. Select from list below: ASTM D steels caustic.

Therefore, the specimen may not fail, but significant cracking may take place. Touchstone takes care that the specimens are supported by nothing more than the corrosive medium comes into contacted with astmm critically stressed area of the specimen. ASTM G – practice for preparation of scc test specimens for weldments.
Stress Corrosion Cracking of Stainless Steel. ASTM F titanium aircraft engine cleaning materials. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:.
