Effects of Product Quality and Design Criteria on Structural Integrity

Editor(s): Richard C. Rice, Douglas E. Tritsch

Explores ways to increase the reliability in the initial quality of engineering materials, components and structures.

Leading experts in the field have presented eleven peer-reviewed papers addressing such issues as:

• The impact of production processing changes on laminated high-strength stainless steel corrosion damage and fatigue strength loss

• High temperature applications using fracture mechanics methodologies

• The influence of density and porosity size and shape on the fatigue properties of a high-strength powder metallurgy steel

• How to alleviate performance problems in a nickel base fastener system

• The effect of alterations in plating and shot peening design criteria on 4340 steel plate fatigue properties

• Fatigue behavior alteration in scale-model reinforced concrete bridge decks subjected to moving loads

• Design criteria and analysis procedures for reliable commercial transport aircraft maintenance

• Design methods to address crack arrest and avoid brittle failure in low-temperature storage tanks.
