Publications:

The published literature on Stress Corrosion Cracking is large and that related to brass is often
embedded with much larger texts. Care must be taken to ensure the material is reviewed with the
application of brass in mind. The following publications and their links, in no particular order,
were found to be helpful in understanding the issue:
