Stress corrosion cracking of cabon steel plate

Stress corrosion cracking on a carbon steel.

Stress corrrosion cracking is a material failure that present a rapid crack propagation. SCC happens in a particular environment, for a particular material in presence of tension stresses. The image, taken during the tuna can steel failure analysis, represent the crack due to SCC. A further confirmation that not only austenitic stainless steel are subjected to stress corrosion cracking phenomenon.
