Steel Isn’t Hard (To Learn)

by Shane Turcott

Steel can be quite strong and hard – these are amongst the reasons why we use it. Yet steel is not hard to learn and understand. This book introduces the most practical, most pragmatic concepts of steel useful to design, manufacture and repair.

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.

We tailor our services to your industry and to your company’s needs.
