Room Temperature Stress Corrosion Cracking of Titanium Alloys


IT has been known for more than 10 years that titanium alloys suffer from intergranular stress corrosion cracking if they are in contact with chlorides at elevated temperatures (> 250° C), but it was only 18 months ago that Brown1 discovered that stress corrosion failures could occur at room temperature in a 3 per cent solution of sodium chloride. Titanium… (More)
