    • Abstract


      The effect of alloying additions viz. cobalt, molybdenum, cerium and a combination of cobalt and molybdenum, on theKISCC of NiSiCr steel in 3·5% NaCl aqueous solution was studied. Addition of cobalt to NiSiCr steel resulted in an increase in theKISCC whereas molybdenum addition decreased theKISCC. Cerium addition did not affect theKISCC while the combination of cobalt and molybdenum resulted in an increase in theKISCC although not as much as in the case of cobalt addition. The effect of alloying elements onKISCC could be attributed to their effect on the critical fracture stress and yield strength.
