Abstract : The effects of surface and environmental conditions on the plastic flow and fracture of metals and alloys are reviewed, with particular emphasis on topics of current controversy. These include the effects of surface films and the hard-vs-soft surface layer controversy in the plastic deformation of metal monocrystals, and the influence of crack-tip chemistry, cathodically-produced hydrogen, brittle films and other parameters in stress-corrosion cracking.
