Although stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) is thought to be responsible for a relatively small percentage of pipeline failures each year, it continues to be a safety concern to pipeline operators and government regulatory agencies, and it must be addressed in integrity management plans.

This course will provide a detailed description of what is known about the appearance and causes of SCC, and it will discuss various approaches to mitigating and managing the problem. Practical information on recognizing and dealing with SCC will be presented along with descriptions of research results that have led to our current understanding of causes and methods of management.
