Test techniques have been developed to investigate corrosion under the influence of temperature changes (thermally induced stresses) and externally applied stresses (mechanically induced stresses). These techniques are discussed with regard to the different types that exist, their performance and limitations, and to the first steps towards standardisation in order to make the results obtained in different laboratories compatible. Recommendations for the different test procedures are given including systematic pre-normative research on the role of the various test parameters.
