"Intergranular and transgranular crack in 17-4PH"
I have a bolt (17-4 PH) whose the initial failure was intergranular fracture surface and, in sequence, changed by intergranular fracture surface. I know that the hidrogen embrittlement can proportionate failure similar to this but in inverse order (transgranular to intergranular), I really don't know. Someone can help me? Thanks.Renato Maia

could you tell wether the bolt developed crack in service or it was there prior to forging. secondly if you could tell the %C and % Cr in it, I could be of some help to you.Er Manuj Kaushesh
