Corrosion of nuclear materials, i.e. the interaction between these materials and their environments, is a major issue for plant safety as well as for operation and economic competitiveness. Understanding these corrosion mechanisms, the systems and materials they affect, and the methods to accurately measure their incidence is of critical importance to the nuclear industry. Combining assessment techniques and analytical models into this understanding allows operators to predict the service life of corrosion-affected nuclear plant materials, and to apply the

"The average operating age of existing nuclear power plants (NPPs) is increasing and safety and performance of these ageing NPPs must be achieved by effectively managing material degradations within an acceptable level. Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is one of significant material degradations for major components of both pressurized water reactors (PWRs) and boiling water reactors (BWRs) and is still an important outstanding technical issue. This publication provides general descriptions of degradation mechanisms of different types of SCC which are concerned
