This course is designed to provide 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.


  • Failure Analysts
  • Engineers


College level class in materials and mechanics


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

  • Apply correct examination and documentation procedures.
  • Interpret fracture surfaces and identify the origin, the direction of crack propagation, the type of loading, and the failure mechanism.
  • Contrast and compare features identified on fractures of plastics, metals, castings and powder metals.

Continuing Education Units: 1.5
