Abstract

Investigations into corrosion - creep interactions in high temperature alloys exposed to corrosive environments are reviewed. After a brief consideration of some essential problems met in creep testing in aggressive environments, the influence of oxidizing, carburizing and sulphidizing conditions encountered either in single or multicomponent environments is discussed. Emphasis is put on the sulphur - creep interaction which forms the most challenging problem for numerous industrial processes. che seTtion related to oxidizing conditions includes an analysis of oxide scale behaviour under stress and a brief consideration of the influence of stress on corrosion. A critical assessment is made of the investigations reported and some suggestions are discussed for desirable future work in the field of corrosion - creep interactions.
