The reported literature on the role of corrosion in degradation and cracking of welded components often deal with the influence of electrochemical corrosion. However, there are limited reports on the interesting influence of relatively less commonly explored factors, such as the role of the bacteria present in the marine environment in stress corrosion cracking, and the role of corrosive gases in degradation and cracking at elevated temperatures. This paper takes a stock of the currently available literature on the two phenomena, and also indentifies some important research opportunities.
