Stress Corrosion Cracking

This research has provided industry with a greater understanding of the mechanisms for Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) initiation and growth, and ultimately with more effective SCC assessment and management tools.

The research provided valuable insight into the SCC cracking phenomena and particularly the angled cracking, providing a clear explanation of the mechanism for the formation and growth of angled cracks and thereby providing confidence in SCC assessment tools used in Industry.

Such SCC assessment tools are also informed by research that determined pipe manufacturing processes leading to an increased susceptibility to SCC in pipeline assets, as well as investigations into the role of pipe wall surface finish and contaminants in the development of conditions that enable the initiation of SCC.
