Course Description

This course will give you a basic understanding of the concepts and practice of analyzing failed parts. Such analyses will save money by eliminating repeated part replacement and increase customer satisfaction. They can also guide redesign of components with improved materials or processes, possibly resulting in further cost savings or improved performance. Quite often the failure seems to be so complex and difficult to understand that no effort is made to determine the cause of failure. With a basic understanding of the principles you will learn in this course, you can ask the “right” questions, get the correct information and then define the failure mechanism and process.

Course Objectives

  • Learning the fundamentals of handling failures and the basic steps to analyze a “failure” in a part
  • Reviewing the major environments leading to or accelerating failure: wear, corrosion and oxidation
  • Having a basic understanding of the characterization tools available and their limitations in determining the cause(s) for a failure
  • Exploring case histories of parts that failed especially due to design / processing errors, incorrect materials choices, service and environment
  • Discussing specific failures that you have encountered or perhaps are experiencing now and obtain some advice on how to analyze them
  • Understanding how failures can originate in manufacturing processes as well as in aggressive environments
