Abstract

Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is known as a major factor that should be considered in the assessment of welding joint structure integrity. Despite the promising and wide application of dissimilar metal joints, the currently available SCC mitigation technique of dissimilar metal joints is not adequate. The challenge is to obtain a good joint while different melting points exist. This article reports a novel SCC mitigation method on a brass-steel dissimilar metal joint by modifying the geometry of the surface. It is evidenced that the sharpened steel (α1 specimen) significantly improves the SCC resilience of the joint. The evaluation of SEM/EDS photos reveals that the α1 geometry induces a smaller pore area around brass-steel micro-joint interfaces which in turn produces stronger joints.
