Failure Analysis of Engineering Structures: Methodology and Case Histories, by V. Ramachandran supplies exemplary coverage on the detection and identification of damage from explosive sabotage. A separate part with 50 case researches of service failures additionally gives worthwhile lessons for future designers, manufacturers, users, and upkeep personnel.
Based mostly on over 4 a long time of fieldwork by the Failure Evaluation and Accident Investigation Group on the National Aerospace Laboratories (Bangalore, India), chapters in the book cover widespread causes of failures with quite a few examples, methodology of failure evaluation including some superior techniques, various mechanisms of failures and attribute macroscopic and microscopic options that provide significant clues to their causes.
Emphasis is positioned on the mechanical properties of materials and their behavior when influenced by construction, process and environment. Metallic, polymeric, ceramic and pure materials are all included and the appliance of these materials to real engineering conditions ought to be emphasized. The use of a case-examine primarily based approach can be encouraged.
Failure Analysis of Engineering Structures: Methodology and Case Histories supplies important reference material and significant suggestions into the design process thereby contributing to the prevention of engineering failures in the future. All submissions will likely be subject to look review from main specialists within the field.
Failure analysts, practicing engineers, and students of engineering will find useful guidance and detailed examples on this reference work on the challenging and complicated task of investigating service failures and accidents.
