Failure Analysis

The failure of a single component in a vehicle, building, or machine can often cause considerable damage and personal injury. By conducting the necessary testing, metallurgical analysis, and stress calculations, we can determine whether a failed component was properly suited for the application, whether it was manufactured to the proper standards, and what failure mode occurred. Our conclusions are supported by microscopic photographs, test reports, calculations, or references to applicable codes or standards.


Determining the mode of failure of a component may require analysis on a microscopic scale...
