Abstract

Problem of erosion has long been an issue in the engineering world. Work on erosion by liquid impact has been studied by various body especially one related to the mechanical engineering field. Liquid impact upon mechanical equipments or metals can be seen in forms of cavitations or metal degradation due to erosion. Among pioneer problems that resulted to this study is the fact that buried natural gas piping are always under the threat of damage due to water jetting in cases where water utility piping which runs parallel to it got leaked. Degradation of piping material not only disrupts the continuous supply of natural gas it too could pose a threat to life and buildings in terms of lost of lives and destruction of buildings. Cases of natural gas piping failure has been proven to be catastrophic as demonstrated in cases of pipe rupture in South Riding, Virginia in 1998 and Carlsbad, New Mexico in 2000 (National Transportation Safety Board, 2000; National Transportation Safety Board, 1998).
