Failure analysis of an elbow tube fitting

Description: This article discusses elbow tube fitting. Abstract: Safe operation of machinery depends strongly on the design of the system and the employement of proper components and materials. Unique to fluid powered systems are the proper selection of hydraulic lines, fittings, and control valves. This paper describes the cause of fracture in an elbow tube fittings due to deficiencies in the dimensional design and materials selection. The investigation included metallography, fractography, hardness testing and metrology. The results showed that the material was low carbon steel subjected to cold forming and normalized annealing processes during tube production. There were dimensional variations in the tube and the material strength was low.
