- Handbook Of Failure Analysis Of Structures : Assessment And
Modern structures for aerospace applications require the advanced knowledge of specialty beams, trusses, frames, rings, and monocoque members. Design engineers have started substituting heavier metal-based components with their lightweight composite counterparts. These hybrid designs, involving coupled metal/composite elements, which are now becoming commonplace, have drastically different failure responses, and understanding such structural failure is paramount to designing the next generation of safe and reliable aerospace vehicles. Failure analysis and prevention are important functions to all of the engineering disciplines. The materials engineer often plays a lead role in the analysis of failures, whether a component or product fails in service or if failure occurs in manufacturing or during production processing. In any case, one must determine the cause of failure to prevent future occurrence, and/or to improve the performance of the device, component or structure. If the structure does not collapse immediately there is a limited period of time until the catastrophic structural failure of the entire structure. There is a critical number of structural elements that defines whether the system has reserve ability or not. Safety engineers use the failure of the first component as an indicator and try to intervene during the given period of time to avoid the catastrophe of the entire structure. For example, Leak-Before-Break methodology means that a leak will be discovered prior to a catastrophic failure of the entire piping system occurring in service. It has been applied to pressure vessels, nuclear piping, gas and oil pipelines, etc. The methods of Structural Fracture Mechanics are used as checking calculations to estimate sensitivity of a structure to its component failure. This book explores the latest advances in the field of this subject. The subject matter, both as regards the arrangement of chapters as well as contents is designed to meet the requirement of the students in several Universities.
