Failure of metallic components may be caused by a variety of factors, such as fatigue, stress overload, creep, corrosion, poor design or fabrication, and more. Whether you need to understand what went wrong, or whether you need to assess the state of your equipment to determine what needs to be done, our team’s long-standing experience in forensic engineering and failure analysis guarantees in-depth, time-efficient analyses and results.
Thanks to our experienced team of metallurgical and mechanical engineers, supported by advanced analytical engineering tools (Finite Element Analysis) as well as capacity for testing and inspection of physical parts, we can deliver in-depth fracture mechanical and fatigue analyses and solutions for any complex industrial components and structures.
We were involved in investigating the sudden failure of highway equipment, including the complete field studies following by design and fabrication review.
The investigation was completed with the fractography and metallurgical analysis of the cracked and broken samples as well as stress analysis with Finite Element Analysis.
Our customer needed to assess the usability of this drum as the main hoist presented a crack.
We were able to run a failure analysis while the hoist remained in-service using Finite Element Analysis.
