A former metallurgist at a foundry that provides steel for U.S. Navy submarines pleaded guilty to falsifying test results that measured the strength of the metal. Prosecutors said she did this for more than 30 years.
A metallurgist in Washington state pleaded guilty to fraud Monday after she spent decades faking the results of strength tests on steel that was being used to make U.S. Navy submarines!
Elaine Marie Thomas falsified results of strength and toughness tests for about half the steel her foundry produced for the Navy, according to a plea agreement.
What people are saying?
Dillon Erebus Dionysus Makes me think of when helmets had to be recalled because they were not actually meeting ballistic standards. Most powerful country in the world, and integrity seems to often be misplaced.
Ron Dziedzicki Recommend he be required to make a barrel with the metal he faked the metallurgical results on, and then take a one way ride over the Niagara Falls – to see the impact of metal fatigue in a real world test!
