Failure Analysis, 6 hp

Course Contents

The course gives knowledge of various failure mechanisms and methodology of failure analysis especially in cast metals. The various factors behind the failure from aspect of materials, design, processing and operational parameters are discussed. It covers the deformation of cast metals at both room and elevated temperature and provides knowledge on fracture mechanics. The environmental factors such as temperature and corrosion affecting the failure are studied. The approach, planning and execution of failure analysis process and related analytical techniques are also discussed.

The course includes the following elements:
- Structure of metals
- Failure modes in cast materials: ductile and brittle fracture, fatigue, creep
- Analysis methods for the study of fracture surfaces
- Plastic deformation, crack nucleation and growthmechanism
- Study of environmental factors (temperature, corrosion) and related failures
- General outcomes and discussion about failure analysis
