The Role of Fractography in Failure Analysis
To perform failure analysis of broken components, it is always important to assess whether the rupture was of the ductile or the brittle type in the case of fracture by overload, or in the case of fracture by fatigue. This webinar illustrates the interplay between metallography and fractography through examples of real failure analysis cases encompassing either overload or fatigue fractures.
