Failure Analysis of Metal Fractures - Industrial Metallurgists

Failure Analysis of Metal Fractures

The purpose of a metallurgical examination of cracked and fractured metal components is to determine the fracture mode and fracture mechanism and obtain information that will help determine the root cause of the failure.

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn about the different steps of a metallurgical failure analysis, the equipment used, the data obtained, how to differentiate between different fracture modes for a metal fracture, and how to use the information obtained from the analyses to determine fracture mechanism and root cause of the failure.

You will have 14 days access to the webinar recording. A pdf file of the presentation slides is available for download.

What you will learn

  • How to perform a failure analysis on fractured and cracked components and joints
  • Four common fracture modes and their appearance
  • Relating fracture surface appearance to the fracture mode
  • Common failure mechanisms associated with cracks and fracture
  • Common analysis techniques used for failure analysis of fractures

Several real-life failures will be used as examples and case studies.

You’ll learn concepts that will enable you to more quickly determine the root cause of fracture failures, better understand failure analysis reports, and better participate in a failure analysis.
