Material Failure

-Material failure is the loss of load carrying capacity of a material unit due to various factors that affect the strength, stability and chemical composition of the object's structure.

-The usual causes of material failure are incorrect materials selection, incorrect processing, incorrect manufacturing procedures, inadequate design or incorrect use.

Handbook of materials failure analysis - with case studies from the oil and gas industry

2016

This Handbook provides an updated understanding on why materials fail in specific situations, a vital element in developing and engineering new alternatives.

This handbook covers analysis of materials failure in the oil and gas industry, where a single failed pipe can result in devastating consequences for people, wildlife, the environment, and the economy of a region.

The book combines introductory sections on failure analysis with numerous real world case studies of pipelines and other types of materials failure in the oil and gas industry

Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering

2001

Topics to be addressed in the Failure Chapter are the following: simple fracture (both ductile and brittle modes), fundamentals of fracture mechanics, impact fracture testing, the ductile-to-brittle transition, fatigue, and creep. These discussions include failure mechanisms, testing techniques, and methods by which failure may be prevented or controlled.

API RP 939-C - Guidelines for Avoiding Sulfidation (Sulfidic) Corrosion Failures in Oil refineries

2019

This recommended practice (RP) is applicable to hydrocarbon process streams with sulfur-containing compounds, without the presence of hydrogen (H2), which operate at temperatures above approximately 500 °F (260 °C) up to about 1000 °F (540 °C).
