Forensic Engineering Analysis Of failures In Plumbing Components
AbstractPlumbing Systems Are Assemblies Of Multiple Components And Parts (Products) To Perform Design Functions and Maintain The Pressure Boundary Integrity. Installation, Product (Manufacturing, Design And material) And External (Over-Pressure, Impacts, Temperature, Misuse, Abuse, And Environment) Defects can Compromise The Pressure Boundary Integrity And Result In Leak/Flood. This Paper Presents The Systematic methodology For The Failure Analysis Of Plumbing Components By Applying Science And Engineering. this Paper Describes The Use Of Various Analytical And Physical Experimental Tools Such As The Finite element Modeling (Fem), Radiography (x-Ray), Scanning Electron Microscopy (Sem) And Materials analysis, As Well.
