Computational algorithms aiming at modeling and visualization of the initiation and growth of intergranular stress corrosion cracks (e.g., in the steam generator tubes) on the grain-size scale have already been proposed. Main focus of the paper addresses the influence of randomly oriented anisotropic elasto-plastic grains on the microscopic stress fields at crack tips. The limited number of calculations indicate that the incompatibility strains, which develop along the boundaries of randomly oriented grains, influence the local stress fields (J-integrals) at crack tips significantly.
