Abstract : This investigation was conducted to elucidate factors involved in the stress corrosion cracking of alloys of interest to the aerospace industry. The study was concentrated in two particular areas: (1) Potentiodynamic and potentiostatic polarization studies of high purity Fe-Ni alloys in chloride-containing and non-chloride-containing H2SO4; and (2) Time-to-cracking for notched and unnotched Beta III titanium alloys which had been given a variety of thermomechanical treatments.
