Crack growth tests were performed in high-temperature water containing hydrogen peroxide (H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$) to evaluate the relationships between the crevice structure and H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ on stress corrosion cracking (SCC) growth morphology of stainless steel (SS). Small compact tension (CT) specimens with different fatigue pre-crack lengths were prepared. 20$$sim$$300 ppb H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ was injected into the high-temperature water at 561 K. Intergranular SCC (IGSCC) was observed only near the side grooves of the CT specimens. Owing to pre-crack shortening, the IGSCC area expanded to the central region of the CT specimens. The effects of H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ on SS appeared intensely near the surfaces exposed to high levels of H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$. The calculations for the percentage of H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ remaining showed that the effects of H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ flowed from both sides of the crack were more obvious than those flowed from the crack mouth.
