In the ε-σ curve, the stress corrosion cracking (SCC) sensitivity index, I SCC , was defined as the ratio of characteristic pa- rameters in corrosive media and in air as shown in Equation (1): = × I I – I I 100% SCC air corrosion air (1) where I air was based on test parameters in the air (R e , R m , A, Z, P); and I corrosion was based on test parameters in the corrosive medium (R e , R m , A, Z, P). R e is yield strength, R m is tensile strength, A is elongation, Z is the section shrinkage, and P is the inner product. In this test, I SCC was expressed with a SCC sensitivity index of P (inner product). When I SCC >35%, the system has a high stress corrosion tendency ; when 25%
