ASQ RRD Webinar: Field Metallography – Bridging the Gap between Inspection and Reliability Non-Destructive Crack Identification

Abstract:

When cracks are found by inspection, reliability engineers must begin to make repair decisions and contemplate the risk to other components. The gap between discovering and solving the problem is often complicated by the lack of information about the damage mode. Whether fatigue cracks, corrosion cracks, manufacturing flaws or another damage mode, each damage mechanism requires a different solution. Field metallography can bridge this knowledge gap by non-destructively identifying the crack mode plus assess for contributing material issues – bridging the gap between inspection finding it and reliability having the information helpful to making decisions.
