Failure Analysis

Course Objectives: :- 

  • Failure analysis is the logical, systematic examination of an item, its construction, application, and documentation to identify the failure mode and to determine the failure mechanism and its basic cause.
  • This program aims to increase the capabilities of engineers as well as technicians to understand the material behavior and select the proper material for each specific application to prevent spare parts damage in service. Some highlights will be focus on how the spare parts can be damaged and what the different modes of fracture are. This technical course covers also the failure that could be happened in all industrial sectors (engineering, petroleum, chemical, medical, etc.). In order to clarify the theoretical theories of failure analysis, some case studies in different sectors will be involved in this course.  In addition, the engineers will learn how to reporting a failure analysis case study to prevent its occurrence in future.
