This lecture course is designed to provide the knowledge to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. This course presents a very practical approach to failure analysis for those who are new to the field or those who want an update. It is also designed for technicians with the pre-requisites and those interested in understanding how knowledge of failure analysis can lead to better productivity. Causes of fractures are explained with diagrams of stress application and distribution. Many case histories of failures and their elimination are highlighted throughout the course.


  • Degreed engineers who are new to failure analysis or for those who want an update
  • Technicians with at least five years experience full-time in a failure analysis lab and who have knowledge of how to prepare and interpret microstructures and how to perform basic mechanical tests


For those without a Materials Engineering Degree, it would be helpful if you must have taken the following:

  1. Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist or Elements of Metallurgy
  2. Metallographic Interpretation
  3. Mechanical Testing of Metals
  4. How to Organize and Run a Failure Investigation


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

  • Describe general procedures, techniques and precautions in failure analysis
  • Recognize how stress systems relate to fracture of ductile and brittle materials
  • Identify typical fatigue, wear, corrosion and elevated-temperature failure characteristics
