Carbon steels are the most versatile load bearing material, and these materials are used in the form of structures, construction, and equipment. The role of environment on these materials under loaded conditions is unique in every application, which requires, through experimental findings, to probe into any failure, which needs, through experimental investigation for future life prediction of, new candidate materials. In the above view it was proposed to investigate the notch effect and different corrosive environment on steel under different loading condition. The methodology of the research experiments briefly included:selection of 0.22% carbon steel; preparation of tensile samples and making notches; exposure of these samples (unloaded) to different environmental conditions; creation of the different controlled corrosive environment in a closed chamber for different time periods; immediately after specified exposure periods the tensile loading experiments were carried out in universal testing machine to obtain tensile properties. In this research we revealed the effect of notch and corrosive environment on the tensile properties of 0.22% carbon steel.
