Abstract : In recent work on stress corrosion cracking, the role of alloying elements which may effect dislocation distribution and cracking has been discussed. Nitrogen has been introduced into austenitic stainless steels in the solid state from NH3/H2 mixtures at temperatures in the range 600-750C. The resistance to cracking is markedly improved. The reasons for this improvement are under investigation. (Author)
