Event description
This course introduces how to examine failed steel parts, specifically their fractures and how to include this in a failure investigation.

About this event

Learn to Recognize Fracture Features

When a part fails, its fracture surface contains evidence as to how it failed. This online course introduces how to interpret mechanical fracture features of steel components. Attendees will learn to recognize ductile, brittle and fatigue features plus how to apply this to a failure analysis investigation.

This online course includes a workbook which participants will use to practice and hone their skills. To ensure adequate time to deliver the course package, registration will end on June 6th, two weeks before the course start. So register early!

Limited to United States and Canada (for now)

Must include mailing address in US/Canada to receive course package.

One Day Course (8 hours), $495/participant.

Topics Covered:

  1. Introduction - learning the most from failed parts
  2. Ductile Overload - diagnosing & causes
  3. Brittle Fracture - diagnosing, embrittlement vs transitioning
  4. Fatigue Failures - diagnosing, interpreting loading conditions
  5. Practice Case Studies (simulated failure analyses)
  6. Shaft Failures
  7. Bolt and Fastener Failures

Who Should Attend:

Everyone dealing with metal equipment failures. Reliability, mechanical engineers, inspectors and metallurgists.

How Learning Works

The course package including a workbook will be mailed in advance (hence the US or Canada address). The instructor-led, online course breaks down how to recognize the different failure modes. Participants evaluate thirty-six fractures in their workbooks plus simulate several failure analysis investigations. Each example builds upon the knowledge and introduces additional concepts.

Hosted through Zoom.
