Original research on developments in Slow Strain Rate Testing for Stress Corrosion Cracking

The latest issue of Corrosion Engineering, Science and Technology (Vol. 47 No. 3), has an article by Bryan Poulson on developments in slow strain rate testing for stress corrosion cracking. Poulson’s paper provides a fascinating history of developments and novel applications of slow strain rate testing with several industrial examples. The paper is a tribute to Professor R N Parkins who pioneered the application of slow strain rate testing for the study of stress corrosion over forty years ago, and who died in 2004.
