Presented in this report are the results of stress corrosion cracking testing per ASTM G36 (Standard Practice for Performing Stress-Corrosion Cracking Tests in a. austenitic stainless steel was studied in accordance with the ASTM G The samples were unidirectional cold-rolled up to 60 and 90 percent reduction in. Revised ASTM G36 apparatus. This client had been testing stress corrosion- cracking in metal welds by clamping a QVF 2″ glass pipe fitting to his samples.

Etching both sections did not gg36 any additional crack depth as sometimes occurs in metallographic studies of stress-corrosion cracking. Cracking of both aastm specimens was observed, and the tests were terminated.
Two 2 1-foot long pieces of 0. Although this sstm may be performed using various concentrations of magnesium chloride, this procedure covers a test solution held at a constant boiling temperature of Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Return to Corrosion Testing. It is a method for detecting the effects of composition, heat treatment, surface finish, microstructure, and stress on the susceptibility of these materials to chloride stress corrosion cracking.
It was decided that cracks in the bare tube could be best examined using a longitudinal cross-section, while the cracks in the finned tube could be best examined using a transverse cross-section.
Stress Corrosion Cracking Testing: ASTM G36, G37, G, & G
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The boiling points of aqueous magnesium chloride solutions at one atmosphere pressure as a function of concentration are shown graphically in Fig. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Circumferential cracking of the bare tube test specimen was apparent within the first 8 hours of testing even while the test specimen was on test. See Section 7 for specific safety precautions. Accompanying paperwork states that both types of tube were fabricated from the same heat lot of material.
No preparation other than deburring and degreasing was performed on the test specimens prior to testing. However, such correlations may not always be possible. Microphotographs of the deepest cracks found on the mounted sections are shown in Figures 3 and 4.
Newark, Delaware USA Circumferential cracks with connecting longitudinal crack in base metal of bare tube. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The test may not be relevant to stress-corrosion cracking in polythionic acid or caustic environments.
Corrosion Testing Laboratories, Inc. This danger is particularly great when small cross section samples, high applied stress levels, long exposure periods, stress-corrosion resistant alloys, or a combination thereof are being used. The test specimens were immersed in the boiling solution and supported using the suggested ladder-back cradles.
Both test specimens were taken off test at 8 hours for examination at low magnification. On the finned test specimen, cracks extended down the fins from the outer edge to the tube wall in a direction roughly normal to the tube wall; at the tube wall the cracks extended in a short arc both longitudinally and circumferentially, the arcs stopping before the next fin was encountered.

This leads to the possibility of confusing stress-corrosion failures with mechanical failures induced by corrosion-reduced net cross sections. A suggested test apparatus capable of maintaining solution concentration and temperature within the prescribed limits for extended periods of time is also described herein.
The boiling points of aqueous magnesium chloride solutions at one atmosphere pressure as a function of concentration are shown graphically in Fig. Careful examination is recommended for correct diagnosis of the cause of failure.
See Section 7 for specific safety precautions. Deepest cracks found on transverse cross-section of finned tube.
ASTM G36 – 94(2013)
Crack characteristics were investigated by preparing metallographic sections of the test specimens. Active view current version of standard. Black lines indicate the approximate location of the outer surface of the tube.
