Current fluctuations have been measured during potentiostatic transgranular stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) of copper, alpha -brass and type 304 stainless steel. Periodic current transients with very short rise times have been shown to be simultaneous with acoustic events. The results confirm that transgranular SCC in these materials proceeds by discontinuous cleavage.
