EFFECT OF VARIOUS MODES OF LOADING ON THE STRESS CORROSION CRACKING OF A MARAGING STEEL

An 18Ni (280) maraging steel has been tested in 3.5 percent NaCl solution under various modes of loading. The most severe corrosion cracking (SCC) of unnotched samples decreased in the sequence: plane strain bending, tension, plane stress bending, and torsion. The most consistent explanation for the various observations is that SCC results from hydrogen embrittlement. Under certain circumstances anodic disolution processes can result in beneficial crack blunting effects rather than SCC failure.
