Abstract : An investigation was conducted to evaluate the stress corrosion cracking resistance of copper based alloys. Cu, Ni, Sn of appropriate weight percentage were melted in a graphite crucible in an electric furnace under the argon atmosphere. The obtained specimens were solutionised and aged as per standards. The heat treated samples were subjected for microstructural evaluation and stress corrosion cracking test as per ASTM standard. In the microstructural analysis it was observed that the dendritic structure was completely vanished when the specimen was subjected to solutionising and aging. The stress corrosion cracking (SCC) was predominant in the regular bronze due to the formation of oxide layers according to the passive film rupture theory. But in the case of spinodal alloys only internal cracks were observed. These observed cracks were due to the pits and burrs present in the alloy
