Aluminum creep acceleration at applying an electric potential to ±1 V has been established experimentally. The fracture surface and side surface microrelief near the fracture surface were investigated by scanning electron microscopy. It is shown that application of ±1 V potential leads to decrease in the fracture toughness. Possible reasons for this phenomenon are considered.
