Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) is the initiation and slow growth of cracks under the influence of tensile stresses and aggressive corrosion environment. Al alloy 2014 T 651 was solution heat treated and stress-relieved. In the present work, Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) experimental arrangement has been used to test the severity of aluminium alloys under particular environmental conditions. Sound welds were obtained with Friction Stir Welding at rotational speed of 800 rpm and welding speed of 200 mm/min. Friction Stir Welds were cut into standard tensile specimens as per ASTM E8 standards. Time to failure of the welds were obtained using 3.5 wt% NaCl solution at pH 10 in 0.7 and 1.1 yields by Stress Corrosion Cracking. Vickers micro-hardness was taken along various regions of the weld. Optical micro-graphs and scanning electron fractographs were taken to analyse the fracture behavior and fracture morphology of Friction Stir Welded aluminium alloy specimens, subjected to Stress Corrosion Cracking.
