Understanding How Components Fail (Third Edition)
Introduction: Why Perform Failure Analysis?
Designs and materials continue to become more complex, with novel technologies developed to create them, and novel instruments invented to analyze them. Engineers at all stages of the design and manufacturing process should appreciate the reasons why formal failure analysis is performed. This chapter describes why failure analysis is conducted and outlines the responsibilities of the failure analyst.
