  • OUTLINE

    OBJECTIVES
    • Differentiate between the types of stress corrosion cracking and describe the differences in morphology of the different types of SCC.
    • Describe the morphology of cracks associated with environmental SCC.
    • Identify the main factors contributing to environmental SCC, including environmental, stress and metallurgical factors.
    • Define the role of Integrity Management in reducing the risk of failure of a pipeline arising from SCC.
    • Compare and contrast options for mitigation and management of environmental SCC.
