... are constructed respond to their environments in accordance with the properties of their materials and hopefully in ways that designers anticipated. For the most part, there are four broad categories of expected material response that must be anticipated: fracture, deformation, corrosion, and wear. Fracture...

... Abstract Metallographic studies found that steel used to fabricate the U.S.S. Arizona battleship during original construction, 1913-1915 and reconstruction, 1929-1931 were consistent with the best materials available during each time period. Due to the force of the forward magazine detonation...

... of bridges to 100+ years include the use of more corrosion resistant materials in new bridge construction and the application of more effective corrosion remediation techniques to existing bridges. The first might involve the use of stainless steel ( 2 ) or fiber composite ( 3 , 4 ) reinforcements...

.... The rotor in question was a tandem, double flow, low-pressure type and was constructed with a central separate shaft with shrunk on forged discs with semi-circular keyways to key them to the shaft. The disc was manufactured from a 2.5% Ni-Cr-Mo-V steel in the water quenched and tempered condition...

... Construction steel design code using load and resistance factor design (LRFD) was developed by Galambos and Ravindra ( Ref 14 ). The American Petroleum Institute (API) has adopted an LRFD format for design of offshore structures ( Ref 15 , 16 ). Over the past decade, there has been considerable interest...

... from which they are constructed cannot “fail” in the same sense as humans. They respond to their environments in ways which designers/engineers/scientists should understand and anticipate. So, the failure presented for analysis is really a failure to meet expectations. Whose expectations? Understanding...

... of damage or failure is much more difficult to determine than the immediate cause of failure. The inability to determine root cause is often related to lack of information, lack of samples, lack of funding, or insufficient availability of knowledge of the situation, environment, process, or background.

... on the mechanical properties of steels contained little direct comparison between carbon steels and similar re-sulfurized grades in the quenched and tempered condition. This is doubtless due to research funding being targeted to specific alloys. For instance, alloy steels were more often analyzed. Therefore...
