Learn about the metallurgical evaluations used for a failure analysis and how to perform failure analysis of fractures, corrosion failures, and manufacturing quality problems.
Stop struggling with failures and quality problems
Do you get involved with failure analysis of failed components and manufacturing quality problems? Do you get stuck at the metallurgical evaluation part of the process? Do the problems linger or take a long time to fix? If you answered yes, this course is for you.
When a component fails or when there is a manufacturing quality problem, the first step to determining the root cause is to perform a failure analysis. The information from the failure analysis is needed to identify the root cause.
In this course you will learn about the failure analysis process, the metallurgical evaluation techniques used for failure analysis, and how the techniques are used for failure analysis of fractured components, corroded components, and manufacturing quality problems.
What you will learn about metal failure analysis
The following aspects of metal failure analysis are taught:
The common failure analysis techniques used to analyze metals and the data obtained from the analyses.
How to determine failure mode and mechanism.
How to select, collect, handle, and prepare samples for failure analysis.
The background information required to determine failure mechanism and root cause.
The common techniques used for failure analysis and the data obtained.
How to determine fracture mode based on the appearance of a fracture surface.
How to perform a failure analysis on fracture, corrosion, and manufacturing failures.
10 case studies are used to give learners experience applying the knowledge taught in the course to solve real-life failures.
The course takes about 5 hours to complete and consists of 8 modules and a final exam. Also, quizzes and problems give you opportunities to apply the concepts taught.
The module titles are:
Module 1: Failure and Root Cause Analysis
Module 2: Failure Analysis Process
Module 3: Analysis Techniques
Module 4: Fracture Failure Analysis
Module 5: Fracture Case Studies
Module 6: Corrosion Failure Analysis
Module 7: Corrosion Case Studies
Module 8: Manufacturing Failure Analysis Steps and Case Studies
