Abstract

Computational chemistry has been used to investigate the mechanism of accelerated oxidation of IGSCC. It has been found that the iron atoms along the grain boundary were oxidized more easily than those at other sites. Moreover, success has been achieved in the examination of the effects of element additions to Fe-based alloys. The results indicated that the Ti, Mn, Sr, Y, Ce, and Hf could be used as such additional elements to obtain improvements in the SCC resistance.
