An example of the type of full scale testing we do is validation of our analysis for arresting dynamic crack propagation in large natural gas pipelines.
Emc2 has a patent for “Soft Crack Arrestors” which is a ductile composite material that will not produce ring-off failure at the arrestor like fiberglass composite arrestors. The high speed video shows the arrest of a crack that is traveling at over 400 fps and includes an overlay of the accompanying analysis
