Decoding Mechanical Failures
by Shane Turcott
When a metal component fails, its fracture surface is the greatest source of information as to why it failed — it just needs to be decoded. Intended for engineers, reliability professionals and inspectors, this book teaches how to recognize and interpret ductile, brittle and fatigue fractures. It provides the logic sequence used for the practical application of fractography: to move from failure mode diagnosis toward the root cause of failure. Additional chapters include discussion on rotating shafts and fastener failures.
Training introducing how to examine and interpret fractures.
In-person and online courses are available.
