Tag: Susceptibility of prestressing steel Fractures due to stress corrosion cracking

The term `stress corrosion’ stands for the process of crack initiation and crack propagation under the influence of a specific corrosive environment and static tensile stresses. It is characterised by cracking without deformation, often without apparent steel degradation and without visible corrosion products. The residual internal stresses already present contribute to the tensile stresses necessary for cracking. Contrary to other
