Engineering Expert Witness Case Study:
Coal Processing Plant Fire


A coal processing plant experienced a major fire. The review of various exhibits cast suspicion on the design and manufacture of one piping section. Detailed finite element modeling analyzed this section subject to the thermal expansion and internal pressure of plant operation. Stress levels were compared to ASME standards. Low-cycle fatigue and overload analyses of the stressed piping sections were performed. Opinions expressed included a determination of the failure mechanism and a statement of the cause of failure. case study
