... Abstract The failure mode of through-wall cracking of a butt weld in a 5083-O aluminum alloy piping system in an ethylene plant was identified as mercury liquid metal embrittlement. As a result of this finding, 226 of the more than 400 butt welds in the system were ultrasonically inspected...

... were observed on the fracture surface; they appear to be defects that intersect surface A and are indicated by the small white arrows in Fig. 1(d) . Fracture appears to emanate from these features. Stereomicroscope inspection at a magnification of 30├Ś revealed whisker like projections within...

... Abstract Several cases of embrittlement failure are analyzed, including liquid-metal embrittlement (LME) of an aluminum alloy pipe in a natural gas plant, solid metal-induced embrittlement (SMIE) of a brass valve in an aircraft engine oil cooler, LME of a cadmium-plated steel screw from...

... mechanics approach to delamination wear of metals. They analyzed a subsurface crack parallel to the surface of a half-plane subjected to a Hertzian surface load. The stress-intensity factors at the crack tips were calculated from an approximate stress field induced by the contact load in a crack-free half...

... that of metals because the dominant lubrication mechanism is elastohydrodynamic and is associated with the elastic deformation of coupled surfaces. In addition, because polymers are self-lubricating, they can be used without external conventional lubrication fluids. The application of external lubricants can...

... reinforcement example, it is recognized that the use of inorganic fibers or whiskers or the various forms of carbon and organic fibers can provide better physical properties. Generally, adding reinforcement increases the stiffness of the plastic part. The greater the glass content, the greater the flexural...
