The ultimate objective of a failure analysis is to ascertain the mode and the cause of the failure, regardless of the material from which the part was fabricated. The investigation is performed in generally the same manner, whether the failed component was produced from metal or plastic or a combination of these materials. Thus, the general steps required to conduct a comprehensive failure investigation are the same, and these are outlined in Fig. 1. In general, the failure analysis process is analogous to putting together a jigsaw puzzle. A failure analysis requires assembling bits of information into a coherent and accurate portrayal of how and why the part failed. Reaching the objectives of the plastic failure analysis, namely, the determination of the mode and cause of the failure, or expressed alternatively, evaluating how the part failed and why it failed, requires a scientific approach and a broad knowledge of polymeric materials.
