Abstract Scope New generation (new-gen) 7xxx aluminium alloys offer benefits in improved toughness and corrosion resistance. However, they can be more susceptible to Environmentally Assisted Cracking (EAC) in humid air. Initiation of EAC cracks has several mechanistically distinct stages of incubation, development of pre-cursors, proto-crack formation and short crack growth. Understanding initiation whilst critical to the overall material performance has always been difficult to study due to its stochastic nature. In this work, a high-resolution optical scanning system was developed, capable of in-situ monitoring the surface of constant displacement (4-point bend) tests. This has allowed for the unambiguous detection of EAC initiation sites and the ability to monitor the growth behaviour of short cracks in relation to the local microstructure. Subsequent site-specific fractography, combined with high–resolution SEM-EDX, has revealed the nature of the preferred initiation sites. This has led us to re-define the meaning of KEAC threshold in these materials.
