This course is best taken in conjunction with the How to Organize and Run a Failure Investigation course.

This course provides the knowledge to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. Practical knowledge of various tests and evaluations that could potentially be used in a failure analysis are provided. In additon, detail information regarding five common failure mechanisms are discussed. Causes of fractures are explained with diagrams of stress application and distribution.  Case histories of failures are also discussed in 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


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

Continuing Education Units: 2.0
