This course is designed for a broad cross-section of failure analysis practitioners. Failure analysis principles, tools and mechanisms are covered in detail. In addition, the practical aspects and importance of considering the failed part, the material of construction and the failure circumstances in combination is stressed. Emphasis is placed on learning the macroscopic failure modes and correlation of these observations with microscopic fracture surface features. The salient points are illustrated with case histories. Course attendees are also encouraged to bring case histories to share in an interactive manner.


  • Individuals actively involved in failure analysis
  • Design personnel
  • Experienced Engineers and Technicians

ASM International course, Principles of Failure Analysis or its equivalent.


Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Conduct macro- and micro-fractographic observations
  • Relate Macro-fractographic observations to loading modes
  • Relate Micro-fractographic observations to fracture mechanisms
  • Correlate fractographic information with other failure-related information
  • Consolidate information to arrive at the cause(s) of failure

Continuing Education Units: 3.0
