DEVELOPMENT OF A STRESS CORROSION CRACKING TEST FOR ARMOR ALLOYS

A stress corrosion test has been developed for use with high-hardness armor alloys: it is self-loaded, and it can be used with any armor plate thickness. Initial trials have proven the validity of the test method, although several refinements are recommended. Further study is needed to determine whether or not the test method can be applied to specification and qualification test procedure. Data produced to date on one plate of XAR-30 high- hardness steel armor show that it is very susceptible to stress corrosion within certain values.
