Understanding the Problem is Half the Solution
Metallurgical Failure Analysis
When a designed component fails, either during production or later in service, the risk of additional failures creates great concern. Diagnosing the precise cause of failure is needed to develop solutions to best contain and prevent repeat failures. Lab-based failure analysis is a useful tool for supporting quality and manufacturing issues by providing details of component failures otherwise not available. This talk will summarize the laboratory resources and methods used to diagnose steel component failures plus the types of information provided from such analyzes.
