05:51 Jun-27-2005 Re: SCC in aluminum You may want to check the article "Wusheng Hu, E. I. Meletis: Materials Science Forum 331 to 337 (2000) 1683." I don't have an ecopy of this.
In practical terms, intergranular corrosion attack in Al alloys is greatly assisted by poor machining/manufacturing methods. Exposed end grains in rolled plate, for example, are susceptible to pitting attack which serves as the nucleation site for intergranular cracks. All you need is some moisture, the intermetallic alloying elements at the grain boundary provide the potential.

The Research and Applications Development (RAD) group is a newly formed team
within Acuren dedicat
ed to tackling challenging inspection problems. Our focus
is the development of novel, field deployable, advanced inspection techniques
for use in cases where standard NDT methods are ineffective. We don't wait for
new innovations, we engineer them. From concept to commissioning.
