Fracture Case Studies, Part 3 has been published in the February 2017 edition of Structure Magazine. This article demonstrates moving from the theoretical to the practical with three case studies including the Northridge earthquake, an ammonia tank and a bridge crane. In this article you will learn about the effects of leaving backing bars in place, break-before-leak conditions and the importance of non-destructive testing (NDT). Thank you Paul for this series of insightful articles. Below are the links to all three articles.
