    meaning of "mock-up"

    Hello everybody.

    I would like to make sure that my reasoning is correct.

    Mock-up involves dismantling an old pipe from aboard a ship, for instance, constructing/assembling a new pipe aboard the ship the same way that the old pipe was assembled and mounting the new pipe on board the ship.

    Do you agree with my reasoning.

    Thank you.

    Mock-up/Mock up can have several meanings. Have you a context that leads you to believe it has the meaning you suggest?

    No, but I wanted to check with you. The meaning I mentioned applies to ships.

    Re: meaning of "mock-up"

    Mock-up means, to me, in the context as close to yours as I can think of, a model for practice purposes. So I don't think your example (a mere part) really qualifies. You'd have to mock up several parts, or some major system, or the whole thing.

    I'm with Konungursvia- the mock-up would be a model made from the old pipe from which the new pipe was built.
