Failure analysis and Prevention

By Prof. D K Dwivedi   |   IIT Roorkee
The course content is designed to systematic understanding on various aspects related with failure such as fundamental sources of failure of mechanical components, industrial engineering tools relevant to failure and failure analysis, general procedure of failure analysis through sample collection, preparation and preservation, testing, macro and microscopic observation of fracture, mode of fracture, metallographic procedure and image analysis, use of fracture mechanics and fracture toughness principles in failure analysis and analysis findings and report/recommendation writing. Presentation will include case studies to communicate concepts and procedures effectively. Case studies will be taken up from failure analysis of weld joints in different sectors.
