Failure by general yielding, yielding at sub-elevated temperature, brittle fractures, and fatigue.

What is the purpose of Stress Analysis?

Stress analysis ensures the safety of piping and piping components, safety of connected equipment and supporting structure, and that piping deflections are within limits.

In regards to fluid properties in the piping system, What is the reynolds number?
