These findings suggested the strong possibility that stress corrosion and/or
corrosion fatigue mechanism(s) were involved in the fracture process. The
hypothesis was further substantiated by metallographic sections which showed
that the ...
In most other situations, fracture surfaces are found to be covered with loose
foreign particles and grease or a layer of corrosion or oxidation product.
Depending on the tenacity of the debris and the electrochemical layer, various

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
This is a great book, not only work as a text book, but also a sophisticate reference book.
