What is Shear Stress?

Why are shear stress equations necessary? This article looks at some examples of shear stress equations: average shear stress, beam shear. What are the basics of shear stress? Whenever two materials rub against or slide over each other, there is shear. While normal stress results from the force applied perpendicular to the surface of a material, shear stress occurs when force is applied parallel to the surface of the material. A common example include the cutting of paper with scissors. Shear stress differs across materials and cross-sections, and is measured using a set of formulas called the shear stress equations. … Continue reading What is Shear Stress?

What is Holiday Test ?

Holiday Test – Overview;  A holiday test here refers to defects in coating or lining, which are Pinhole, Void, Crack, Thin Spot or Contaminant.  Holiday Test is a method for checking these defects by providing electricity through the defects in Coating/lining to Workpiece. If any area has a defect, spark or short circuit will occur. Holiday Test will be divided into two(2) main methods. According to the thickness of Coating/lining by Low Voltage or “Wet Sponge” It applies to Coat thickness less than 500 microns of High Voltage or “Spark” is used to Coating thickness greater than 500 microns. Example of understanding the methods: … Continue reading What is Holiday Test ?

Pipe support shoe (sliding type) – inspection

Pipe Supports Inspection – Pipe Shoe off Support;  When checking piping, be sure to check the position of Pipe Shoes to see if they are still in the right position or if they fall out of support like below: Pipe Supports Inspection – Fix Pipe Shoes off Support;  In the event that the pipe shoe is dropped from the support, it can be resolved by expanding the support structure to support the thermal expansion.
