Metal Failure Analysis - online course for engineers

Metal Failure Analysis

Metal Failure Analysis

Learn about the metallurgical evaluations used for a metal failure analysis and how to perform failure analysis of fractures, corrosion failures, and manufacturing quality problems.

In this course you will learn about the following:

  • Failure analysis process and how the data is used to determine the root cause of metal problems
  • Metallurgical evaluation techniques used for failure analysis and the data obtained
  • How the analysis techniques are used for failure analysis of fractured components, corroded components, and manufacturing quality problems.

Stop struggling with failures and quality problems

When a component fails or when there is a manufacturing quality problem, perform a failure analysis is the first step to get the information needed to identify the root cause. But many people struggle because they are not familiar with how a failure analysis is performed, the data obtained, and how to use the data to determine the root cause. The result - lingering quality and product reliability problems.

This course is for you if you are involved with failure analysis of failed components and manufacturing quality problems.

What you will learn

The following aspects of metal failure analysis are taught:

  • The common metal failure analysis techniques used to analyze metals and the data obtained from the analyses.
  • How to determine failure mode and mechanism.
  • How to select, collect, handle, and prepare samples for failure analysis.
  • The background information required to determine failure mechanism and root cause.
  • The common techniques used for failure analysis and the data obtained.
  • How to determine fracture mode based on the appearance of a fracture surface.
  • How to perform a failure analysis on fracture, corrosion, and manufacturing failures.

10 case studies are used to give learners experience applying the knowledge taught in the course to solve real-life failures.

Course content

The course takes about 5 hours to complete and consists of 15 modules and a final exam.  Also, case studies and quiz questions give you opportunities to apply the concepts taught.

The module titles are:

  • Module 1: Failure and Root Cause Analysis
  • Module 2: Failure Analysis Process
  • Module 3: Analysis Techniques Introduction
  • Module 4: Visual and Stereo Zoom Examination
  • module 5: Non-destructive Testing
  • Module 6: Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Module 7: Metallography
  • Module 8: Composition Analysis
  • Module 9: Mechanical Testing
  • Module 10: Fracture Failure Analysis
  • Module 11: Fracture Case Studies
  • Module 12: Corrosion Failure Analysis
  • Module 13: Corrosion Case Studies
  • Module 14: Manufacturing Failure Analysis Steps and Case Studies
  • Module 15: Review

You will have 4 months access to complete this course.

Note: It will be helpful, but not necessary, to take our Principles of Metallurgy course prior to taking this course

Course certificate

A certificate for 5 training hours (0.5 CEUs) will be awarded after completing all course modules and successfully completing the final exam.


  • "Principles of Metallurgy covered the foundations of metallurgy and effects of manufacturing processes needed to obtain desired mechanical properties. This information has been valuable during my work in both design and manufacturing. I highly recommend it for someone that could benefit from knowledge of the fundamentals of metallurgy."

  • The Principles of Metallurgy course was a great refresher and supplement to the Properties of Materials course I took in college. The content focuses on information relative to industry, which will help greatly in my day-to-day job functions.

  • Well worth the time to do Metallurgy of Steel Heat Treating. It has given me more confidence in my job and given me a better understanding of some of the heat treatments used in the business

  • I learned a bunch from this course. I needed an understanding of the heat treating and metals for our heat treating process in house. I now have a much better understanding of what is accomplished in the process along with understanding what could be a problem in our process.
