Your Metal Component has Failed in Fatigue: What do you do next?

Fatigue is a major failure mode for metal components, in commercial, industrial and research environments, and can have catastrophic consequences. Understanding the mechanisms behind fatigue failures and knowing how to handle samples after they have failed in fatigue, is essential for engineers to perform effective analysis.

This white paper provides an introduction to the theory behind fatigue in general, and the factors that affect how materials perform in fatigue. Additionally, we will discuss the best actions to take when a part has failed in fatigue and what to expect from a metallurgical failure analysis or root cause investigation.
