"The image of stress corrosion I see Is that of a huge unwanted tree, Against
whose trunk we chop and chop, But which outgrows the chips that drop; And from
each gash made in its bark A new branch grows to make more dark The shade of
mechanisms involving a cooperative interaction between a static stress and the
environment include stress corrosion cracking (SCC), hydrogen embrittlement (
HE), and liquid metal embrittlement (LME). The subject of fatigue and corrosion ...
Consequently, EAC in aluminum alloys may take the form of stress corrosion
cracking and liquid metal embrittlement but not gaseous hydrogen embrittlement.
* By contrast, HE plays an important role in the fracture of steel and titanium

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
