Metal Failure Analysis & Steps To Investigate The Failure

Metal failure is a common phenomenon when a metal component is subjected to cyclic stresses or overloading. In this article we discuss how to perform a metal fatigue failure analysis to determine the reason for the failure. By this we can be able to take necessary corrective action in design, maintenance, and operation to avoid another failure. Initial observation, back ground data of the metal, laboratory studies, and synthesis of the failure will be discussed in this article, as well as what causes the majority of metal failures actually seen in the field and industry.
