Abstract

Abstract The relationships between grain boundary segregation and crack growth of stress corrosion and corrosion fatigue in 7050 aluminium alloy have been investigated under various aging conditions; the effects of grain boundary segregation on intergranular fracture work have been calculated using a quasichemical approach. The results show that the hydrogen content at the crack tip and the crack growth rate increase with the concentration of solid solution Mg on increasing grain boundary; both Mg and H segregation induce the intergranular fracture work to decrease. Mg segregation accelerates H enriching and crack propagation. It is indicated that a MgH interaction occurs in the processes of corrosion fatigue as well as stress corrosion.
