9780070158047: Metallurgy of Failure Analysis

Complete Investigative Toolkit for Metal Failure-Design or Process

Whether the problem is corrosion on the working surfaces of valuable or life-essential machinery, breakdowns in linchpin equipment, or life-threatening faults in air- or spacecraft, the causes must be found so that future disasters may be prevented. Metallurgy of Failure Analysis puts the tools for finding the answers in your hands.

A complete guide to all types of metal failure, both design and process, it features: coverage of faults due to casting, forging, welding, machining, and heat treatment; analysis of the concepts and mechanisms of fatigue, stress corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement, and more; remedial measure for corrosion, overload, fatigue, and wear; investigative procedures including destructive, nondestructive, and fractographic analysis.

Book Description:

Coverage of both process and design failure analysis makes this book invaluble for those working in quality assurance, design engineering, metallurgy, and materials. Users learn to identify sources of failures and defects--investigate and test areas of failure--and implement remedial measures for corrosion, overload, fatigue, and wear. Included are 36 case studies that cover heat deterioration, cracking, shear, high-velocity impact, torsional and bending overload, creep, and other phenomena.

From the Back Cover:

The Complete Investigative Toolkit for Metal Failure-Design or Process What caused that fatal crack in the wing strut? Why did the link rods give way in the machine assembly? What caused the rivet heads on the helicopter rotor head to fail? With so much depending on the performance of metal parts, industry is critically interested in the causes of failures. Whether the problem is corrosion on the working surfaces of valuable or life-essential machinery, breakdowns in linchpin equipment, or life-threatening faults in air--or spacecraft, the causes must be found so that future disasters may be prevented. Metallurgy of Failure Analysis puts the tools for finding the answers in your hands. A complete guide to all types of metal failure, both design and process, it features: Coverage of faults due to casting, forging, welding, machining, and heat treatment; analysis of the concepts and mechanisms of fatigue, stress corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement, and more; Remedial measure for corrosion, overload, fatigue, and wear; Investigative procedures including destructive, nondestructive, and fractographic analysis; Numerous fractographs, photomicrographs, and illustrations; 37 striking case studies of metal failures and their investigations; Emerging trends, methodologies, and techniques of failure analysis. For anyone working in quality assurance, metallurgy, materials, or aircraft design, Metallurgy of Failure analysis will be an invaluable resource.
