The Maintenance Community Presents: Studying Fractures – Recognizing and Understanding Failure Modes

About this event

Equipment can fail for a variety of reasons. Instead of guessing how a part failed, its fracture features can be studied and the failure mode diagnosed. This talk will introduce how mechanical fracture features can be recognized, then how diagnosis can direct an investigation towards the root cause. Brittle fracture will be used to illustrate the logic sequence applied in diagnosing, understanding why something failed, and applying this information towards developing effective solutions.
