About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Mechanical Failure, Definition of the Problem: Proceedings of the 20th Meeting of the Mechanical Failures Prevention Group, Held at the National Bureau of Standards, Washington, D. C., May 8-10, 1974 Mechanical failures are a pervasive fact of life in our society. Ranging from the failure of small items that all of us have experienced and that many of us take for granted, to the failure of a large complex structure that often becomes front page news, they have undesirable consequences for our society. The large ones many times cause loss of life or cause serious injury to many people. The minor ones sometimes also cause loss of life or injury, and they always cause frustration and anger on the part of the one to whom they occur. Always they cause loss of valuable material, and have undesirable social and economic consequences. Thus it is not surprising that a large segment of our technological community devotes its efforts to the prevention of mechanical failures, and that numerous, agencies of the Government are charged with the responsibility of preventing mechanical failure. These efforts to prevent mechanical failures are wide ranging indeed. They go from the material scientist studying the fundamentals of fracture, to the metallurgist assuring that a steel forging meets specification, to the design engineer designing a new bridge, to the Government administrator considering new specifications to reduce the incidence of me chamical failures. Yet despite these efforts mechanical failures continue to occur, and continue to present a problem whose solution, if possible, would have highly desirable consequences for our society. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition. We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully; any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
