THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS – DECODING FAILURES
Introduction to Metallurgical Failure Analysis & Fractography
Diagnosing the precise cause of a failure is critical for developing cost-effective solutions that prevent repeat failures. Metallurgical failure analysis is a useful tool for supporting manufacturing, quality and reliability efforts by providing details of component failures that would not otherwise be available. This workshop will introduce the tools and concepts applied during lab-based failure analysis. In particular, the participants will get a hands-on introduction to fracture recognition using stereo microscopes. Fractured parts from case studies will be used to introduce ‘fractography’ using these microscopes and explain its role in failure analysis.
Add Details: Space is limited.
