A short overview is given of some of the key requirements in meeting the needs of industry with respect to testing and prediction of environment assisted cracking of metals. The primary challenge is to bridge the gap between laboratory testing based on simplified testing conditions and actual service experience where complex variations in environment, temperature and stress often determine the likelihood of failure. Examples from the oil and gas, power and chemical process industries will be used to illustrate the progress in responding to these demands.
