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.
Analyses and Consultations
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.)
