Modelling of IG-SCC mechanism at LWR conditions through coupling of a potential-based cohesive model and Fick’s second law

A fracture mechanic and diffusion model was coupled to simulate the behavior of Intergranular Stress Corrosion Cracking (IG-SCC). To ensure correct physical behavior some assumptions were made, the ion travel, the non-reversible adsorption, the oxide growth dependencies and the diffusion dependency on damage. The model was implemented in a user subroutine in ABAQUS using a cohesive element formulation and an extra adsorption term in Fick’s second law. The coupling was achieved by assuming proportionality between the total adsorption and fracture energy. The physical assumtion were verified on a DCB model.
