Metallurgical Failure Analysis & Prevention - Face to Face Course
Due to increasing demands imposed on high-performance metals and the disastrous and costly results of component failures, the need for designers and engineers to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of failure investigation and analysis is essential. Delivered in collaboration with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), this course will enable delegates to determine how and why a metal component has failed or fractured during service and to identify means of detecting and preventing such failures in the future.
Is this course for you?
- Can you explain the metallurgical concepts underlying material integrity & resistance to failure?
- Can you state the various strategies for determining the mode of failure and how it can be prevented in the future?
If you’ve answered ‘no’ to any of these, then this course is for you.
Target Audience: This course is suitable for design engineers, production engineers, after-sales professionals, laboratory staff, marketing & sales professionals in all sectors of engineering. It is also applicable to insurance investigators & loss adjusters. Sectors include, for example, aerospace, automotive, conventional powergen, nuclear & renewable energy. A basic understanding of science & engineering principles is assumed.
Upon completion of this course, you will:
- Explain the metallurgical concepts underlying material integrity & resistance to failure.
- Review the mechanisms by which metal products can fail.
- Appreciate the multiplicity of techniques available for investigating failures.
- Strategies for determining the mode of failure and how it can be prevented in the future.
Forthcoming available dates:
