Reason for recall: Based upon reports from the field, the steerer tube collar on select Roubaix, Ruby, Diverge, and Sirrus bicycles may be susceptible to stress corrosion cracking.
But there are also forms of corrosion that can occur more rapidly, such as stress corrosion cracking, environmental hydrogen embrittlement and fatigue corrosion.
They cover the thermodynamics of materials corrosion, electrochemical corrosion kinetics, oxidation and hot corrosion of metals and alloys, the uniform corrosion and passivation in metallic materials, localized corrosion in metallic materials, stress corrosion in the cracking of metals, the corrosion and protection of metal in the natural environment and chemical medium, the corrosion and protection of nonmetal material, the corrosion of materials in high-technology fields, and the protection technology of material corrosion.
However, besides the poor resistance of common Mg alloys to corrosion [5-14], the high susceptivity of AZ serials of Mg alloys to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) [15-23] is also a limit for further service applications.

To date, more than a third (36%) of accidents occur on the main gas pipelines (MG) of the Unified Gas Supply System (UGSS) belonging to <<Gazprom>> PJSC as a result of the development of stress corrosion defects or stress corrosion (hereinafter referred to as SCC).
The work presented below has been focused on the susceptibility of 7xxx-series alloys to stress corrosion cracking (SCC).
The stress corrosion cracking occurs only under the combined action of tensile stresses and corrosive environments [10] and must be considered as the emergent properties effect.
Among the environmental assisted cracking, active path corrosion type stress corrosion cracking (APC-SCC) has been recognized to emit no AE[1][2][3].
Duplex Steel has 2 times greater strength of resistance as compared to other authentic stainless steel and also helps in Improving resistance mainly to fight against corrosion and stress corrosion cracking.
The common corrosion types are mainly galvanic corrosion, pitting corrosion, filiform corrosion and stress corrosion of these.
