Environmentally assisted cracking (EAC) occurs in commercial metals and alloys, including widely used carbon steels in automotive industry and stainless steels and nickel based super alloys in chemical industry. This review paper summarizes critical application problems and issues of EAC in each industry sector; current industrial level understanding on corrosion fatigue (CF), hydrogen induced cracking (HIC), and stress corrosion cracking (SCC); dominant factors affecting crack initiation and propagation; ongoing studies focusing on industrial approaches for improvement; trends and directions of future research and development.
