Abstract

Failure analysis is a systematic investigative procedure using the scientific method to identify the causes of a failure. This chapter begins by exploring what failure analysis is followed by a section describing the sequence of stages in the investigation and analysis of failure and the three principles that must be carefully followed during the analysis. It then provides information on the normal location of fracture and concludes with a list of questions to ask about fractures.
