Abstract
The change of the mechanism for Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) on 304 austenitic stainless steel was investigated in 42 wt% magnesium chloride solution at 106 0C by using a constant load method. The solution-annealed specimens were applied under constant load of 30.5 Kg/mm2 and 40 Kg/mm2. The non-solution annealed specimens were applied under constant load of 20 Kg/mm2 and 25 Kg/mm2. All experiments were carried out under an open circuit condition. The most of fracture mode on non-annealed type 304 at various sensitizing temperature (6000C, 7000C, 8000C) is intergranular. All fracture mode in annealed type 304 at various sensitizing temperature is trangranular. The deformation can be easy to move by growing grains in annealed type 304 so that it can be predicted by decreasing Vickers hardness value. In non-annealed type 304, the deformation can be sustained because of the small size of grains. The role of  martensite mechanism in non-annealed type 304 significantly contribute to the forming of fracture in MgCl2 solution at 1060C especially in grain boundaries. In annealed type 304, mechanism of fracture can be related to deformation through slip plane in grains.
