SCC behavior of cold drawn and stress-relieved prestressing steel has been studied at room temperature in 1N Na2HPO4 at pH 3. Effect of stress on anodic polarization behavior was studied. Time-to-failure was studied under unpolarised and polarized conditions. Susceptibility increased under constant cathodic overpotentials and decreased under constant anodic potentials. This study confirms the hydrogen embrittlement mechanism
