(Lehigh) Stress Relaxation Cracking Phase II
- Strains due to forming and welding can accelerate precipitation and increase cracking susceptibility during post-weld heat treatment (Stress Relief Cracking) or long term ageing like in service in alloys 347H and IN740H.
- IN740H is a relatively new alloy, and the variables effect PWHT cracking susceptibility are not understood in detail
