English abstract
Intergranular stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of austenitic stainless steel components is a life-limiting factor in nuclear power plant, in which failure of structural components presents a substantial hazard to both safety and economic performance. This paper reports an on-going research programme into the mechanisms of intergranular stress corrosion cracking in austenitic stainless steels in simulated light water environments. These make use of new analytical and modelling techniques to develop an improved mechanistic understanding of the influence of materials, environment and stress on SCC. The work aims to establish new approaches for the engineering of microstructures and surfaces to develop stainless steels with improved SCC resistance.
