Webinar: Failure Analysis of Metal Fractures

Join ASTM’s webinar on the “Failure Analysis of Metal Fractures.” If you’re involved with failure analysis of fractured or cracked metal components or joints, this webinar is for you. Join Michael Pfeifer, Ph.D., P.E. on Wednesday September 14, 1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern time time to learn about failure analysis of fractured and cracked components and joints.

You’ll learn concepts that will enable you to be more productive as you’ll be able to more quickly determine the root cause of fracture failures, better understand failure analysis reports, and better participate in a failure analysis.

September 14, 2016 – 1 pm EDT

Cost: $89

What You Will Learn

The following topics will be taught:

  • How to perform a failure analysis on fractured and cracked components and joints
  • Four common fracture modes and their appearance
  • Relating fracture surface appearance to the fracture mode
  • Common failure mechanisms associated with cracks and fracture
  • Common analysis techniques used for failure analysis of fractures

Several real-life failures will be used as examples and case studies. Also, attendees will be given opportunities to apply their knowledge by answering failure quiz questions

Target Audience

This course is targeted to design and quality engineers, and engineers involved with root cause analysis

Registering for the Webinar

The fee is $89 per person. After registering you will receive an email within a few hours with information about how to access the webinar. In addition to the webinar, you’ll get handouts of the webinar slides and 7-day access to a recording of the webinar.
