||Crack-tip electrochemistry in relation to corrosion fatigue of offshore structural steels in seawater. Technical summary and implications
||HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. 192p. Illus. Bibl.ref. Price: GBP 40.00.
||Environmentally assisted fracture in seawater is generally considered to be a consequence of the interaction between electrochemical processes at the tip of a crack and localised stress or strain. Hence, a knowledge of the rates of these processes is an essential feature in the development of a comprehensive understanding of corrosion fatigue. This report summarises the important conclusions arising from a research programme on crack electrochemistry in relation to fatigue of structural steel in seawater.
