    • Abstract


      Aqueous corrosion of austenitic stainless steels and their weldments has been reviewed, with particular reference to the results of the studies conducted at the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research at Kalpakkam. Different aspects of pitting and crevice corrosion, intergranular corrosion and stress corrosion cracking in stainless steels have been discussed. Since secondary phases present in these stainless steels have a significant influence on the corrosion behaviour of these steels, the methods of estimation of these secondary phases have also been discussed.
