Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) is one of the most common environmentally assisted failure modes encountered. It typically occurs due to improper materials selection or heat treatment, design issues, and unforeseen environmental conditions, i.e., inadequate maintenance, thermal transient conditions, or lack of consideration of residual stresses. Read more about Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC).
O’Donnell Consulting evaluates stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and develops solutions to mitigate its effects. In addition, we perform Fitness-For-Service evaluations per API-579 and ASME Section II – as well as evaluating NDE test results and designing weld repairs. Let us help you resolve your SCC issues – enabling you to lower costs, and improve safety.
