Evidences suggest that the torque plate has failed by stress corrosion cracking (SCC). Microstructural study revealed that the SCC was promoted in the component due to unsatisfactory microstructure resulting from overheating during solution heat treatment. The situation was found to be further aggravated due to wrong fabrication of the component from the wrought stock. A detailed analysis of the failure is presented in this report and a few recommendations suggested for prevention of similar failure.
