golpe de ariete
Explanation:
me parece que en este caso steam hammer se refiere al fenómeno que ocurre cuando se crea presión en una tubería y ésta se arruina y no a la herramienta operada con vapor

Me parece que golpe de ariete es la traducción para steam hammer y/o water hammer. La presión que se crea en la tubería que causa la deformación o cavitación (pitting) puede ser ocasionada tanto por agua como por gas (vapor de agua).
