Stress-corrosion cracking, SCC.

A cracking process that requires the simultaneous action of a corrodent and sustained tensile stress. This excludes corrosion-reduced sections that fail by fast fracture. It also excludes intergranular or transgranular corrosion, which can disintegrate an alloy without applied or residual stress. See also corrosion.
