Microscopic Characterization of CPVC Failure Modes


May 13, 2010

Dr. Jennifer Hoffman and her co-authors Dr. Maureen Reitman, Dr. Suresh Donthu, Paul Ledwith and Dave Wills of Exponent received the 2009 Best Paper Award for the Failure Analysis and Prevention Special Interest Group at SPE’s Annual Technical Conference held in Chicago, IL. Titled “Microscopic Characterization of CPVC Failure Modes,” the paper showed failure surfaces of CPVC pipes subjected to various loading conditions including impact, burst/overload and environmental stress cracking.

Their paper was recently highlighted in the Failure Analysis and Prevention newsletter.
