Introduction to Examining Fractures 

March 23, 2023 – 9am to 5pm EST

Online course for those in the US, Canada, and Mexico

Learn to Recognize Fracture Features

When a part fails, its fracture surface contains a recording of how it failed – its fracture features just need to be decoded. This online course introduces how to interpret mechanical fracture features. Learn to recognize ductile, brittle and fatigue features plus how to apply this to a failure analysis investigation.

This is a practical course and there is no better way to learn than doing. The course includes a workbook with dozens of exercises to practice upon and hone your skills (see video clip below). To ensure adequate time to deliver the course package, registration will end two weeks before the course starts. Specifically, registration ends Friday, March 10th. So register early!

Topics Covered

  1. Introduction
  2. Ductile Overload
  3. Brittle Fracture
  4. Fatigue Failures
  5. Practice Case Studies (simulated failure analyses)
  6. Shaft Failures (if time)
  7. Bolt and Fastener Failures
