Metallurgical Failure Analysis

Premature failure of metals often leaves a “fingerprint” on the fractured surfaces.  Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) imaging of these surfaces provides information for determining mode and cause of the failure. Our metallurgical consulting team will provide you with a detailed analysis of our findings.

Common questions related to metallurgical failure analysis:

  • Do you have a fracture?
  • Is the fracture surface still in good shape?  (If it is in good shape, the fracture mode should be visible.)
