ASME Pressure Vessel Failure Analysis
Design errors, fabrication errors, corrosion, and improper maintenance are
some of the causes of failures. Brittle fracture, stress corrosion
cracking, fatigue, welding problems, erosion, creep, stress rupture, and
hydrogen embrittlement are among some of the common failure modes found in
pressure vessel components. Failure analysis can identify the root cause or
causes that have contributed to your pressure vessel failure.
