Flexural Test

Flexural Test

A flexural test also known as the modulus of rupture test or the bending test, experts from Bobcasino explain, is a standard method used to determine the strength and performance of concrete in bending or flexural conditions. This test method is critical for assessing...
Weldability of Structural Steels

Weldability of Structural Steels

If weld preparation is excellent and operator-induced defects (e.g., lack of penetration or fusion) are avoided, all the standard structural steels can be successfully welded. However, several steels may require special treatments to achieve a satisfactory...
Hydrogen Embrittlement

Hydrogen Embrittlement

Hydrogen embrittlement can occur when metals are exposed to hydrogen gas or certain hydrogen-containing compounds. When hydrogen atoms diffuse into metal, they can weaken the metal’s atomic bonds and cause it to become more brittle and prone to cracking or...
