Your office (IDK what engineers call their workplace D:!) must have fun people in it :D.
EEEK! Double post! Sooooowwy T_T
Iron butt rally? Do I want to know?
When you see it exploding...
Wow, your workplace has some really broad definitions for the term "non-destructive"! I lurve it ;D
If you build it wrong, then it exploding will destroy it, yes.
But if you build it RIGHT....
This is why I love Engineers ^_^
Well, sounds like an entirely valid test to me! Although personally I'd like to do my running a bit BEFORE it blows up, blast fronts usually move faster than I can.
Reminds me of "If you see me running...try to keep up." XD
Sounds like that might even inspire an exercise regimen. :)
Also remember if you see someone running its usually a good idea to follow them... unless its towards on coming traffic
No mild jog will do!
@deserthare Unless the person is running *towards* the explosions...I have found it is nearly always safe to run in a perpendicular fashion to the other people running.
does that mug say "iron butter rolls"?
I thought it said 'Iron butt rally'.
Sorry for blank comment. Twitchy fingers accidentally hit space bar :(
lol that reminds me of the shirt Bomb techs like wearing. From it just has their department name/number and the back of the shirt says "If you can read this you are not running fast enough"
hmm... Iran but rails... maybe, but nah.
Anyway, I know of Pressure Vessel Welding through knowing a few boilermakers. I suppose a running NDT would be to test it under working conditions, am I right?
I gotta agree with AlmostLiterally, I think it says "Iron butt rally"
Yeah I think it says 'Iron Butt Rally'. It's followed by a bike as well, so it kinda makes sense
Dodge the blast wave!
Or as TVTropes calls it, "Outrun the Fireball".
I have a feeling it says "Iran Butt Rally"...
I prefer the HSP* method of dealing with explosions, though running around in a circle screaming like a little girl has it merits.
*HSP of course meaning Human Shield Protection
I love how on the coffee cup it says 'iron butt rally' =]
Y'know, I'm not entirely sure "Keep upping the pressure until it explodes" really counts as NDT;)
agreed agreed but what if its a nuke? you can't run fast enough to escape
in then "mehulk" you put you cool face
Actually, I'd rather run BEFORE it explodes O_O
Hmm, doesn't vibration monitoring count as a non-destructive test? There are all kinds of things you can do to most kinds of equipment to see how well it's working, as it's working, without breaking it. The real issue is when the management calls you up for a running destructive test.
We follow similar advice in my job. Only it is more like if you drop it RUN. I work with munitions so dropping a part could arm it, hence the running. Do you all have evacuation distances. We run way ahead of time because, yes you can't really outrun a blast.
Pretty good advice for any situation involving exploding things, really.
