ASM How To Organize & Run A Failure Investigation Online Course
Have you ever been handed a failure investigation and were not quite sure all the steps required to complete the investigation? Or perhaps you had to review a failure investigation and wondered if all the aspects had been properly covered? Or perhaps you read a failure investigation and wondered what to do next? The initial steps of a failure investigation set the direction and, in many cases, ensure a successful investigation or doom it to failure. Here is a chance to learn the steps to organize a failure investigation and ensure success.
Practical Fractography - November 27-28, 2018
This course provides a practical understanding of fractography through a combination of lecture and hands on experience. Theory and examples presented in the lectures are reinforced by macro and micro examination of failed parts in the lab. Visual examination as well as stereo microscopy and scanning electron microscopy will be utilized to interpret example fractures. Improve your skills in this vital portion of most failure examinations.
Metallurgy for Additive Manufacturing, December 3-6, 2018
