Pipe whip is a safety related issue for nuclear power and chemical plants, where pipes are often used to transport fluids at high pressure and high temperature. Experiment works for empty pipe and liquid filled pipe are needed in this study. The model was made of simple pipe whip system which enables the missile pipe to hit the target pipe at an angle of 90° and also 55° oblique impact. The results of the experiments show the possible damage and failure of different types of pipe whip with different fill conditions. 2.
