Fatigue Crack Propagation Comparison of a Hydropower Main Inlet Valve Using 3D Crack Meshes in a Full Model Versus a Sub-Model

Technical Paper - Presented at the 2017 Science in the Age of Experience Conference

Two common questions about structures with cracks are: will the crack cause it to break immediately, and if not, how soon will the crack grow to a size large enough to cause failure?

Quest Integrity's resident failure analysis expert, Dr. Greg Thorwald, discusses two effective approaches for assessing fatigue crack propagation. Click here to view the full technical paper.
