Failure Analysis

Case studies of mechanical, functional and / or cosmetic damages through:

  • check of design data and conditions of use;
  • inspections test and destructive/non-destructive examinations, chemical analysis, electron microscopy examinations and micro analysis, macro and microfractographic inspections, metallographic analysis; microfractographic inspection using scanning electron microscopy (SEM);
  • measurement of applied and residual tensional states;
  • sizing and design checks; operating condition simulation;
  • EDS microanalysis for cases of corrosion;
  • study of the correlation of the properties and characteristics investigated to further understanding of the damage phenomena.
Shape and Dimension Measuraments
Check of Design Data and Conditions of Use

Failure Analysis and Prevention

Prevention

Definition of supply and acceptance conditions for materials, semi-finished products and heat or thermochemical treatments, etc., by means of:

  • drawing up technical purchase specifications
  • planning of acceptance tests for monitoring product quality levels
