Abstract A new approach is suggested for the description of deformation and long-term fracture of metals under the simultaneous influence of external mechanical loads at a complex stress state and a corrosive environment. To model this influence, we utilize the structural-phenomenological approach in accordance to which the material is represented as consisting of a large number of structural elements. To describe the long-term strength phenomenon, we introduce the concept of the probability of fracture for individual elements and derive the kinetic equation for the density of undamaged structural elements. To characterize the complex stress state, we utilize the concept of the equivalent stress in the structural element. We choose the stress intensity to be the equivalent stress. For a special case of loading of a cylindrical shell, the conditions of the initiation and propagation of the fracture front are established. The transition from the microfracture on the level of the structural elements to the macrofracture of the entire body is considered. Detailed creep and long-term strength analyses are performed for a thick-walled tube subjected to an internal pressure and a corrosive medium in the internal cavity. The equations obtained are applied to the analysis of the familiar experimental data on the long-term strength scale effect in thin-walled tubular specimens.
