When a product fails through fracture of one of more components, determination of the fracture mechanism is a critical step in the failure analysis process. MEE technical staff are experts in the science and art of fractography.
Fracture analysis through characterization of the macroscopic and microscopic fracture features is an indispensable tool for understanding the mechanism (or mode) of fracture and identifying physical conditions of the component that may have contributed to the failure. MEE staff are experts at interpretation of fracture features to determine the fracture mechanism (ductile fracture, fatigue fracture, etc.) and fracture origin locations, as well as provide information about the direction and magnitude of forces that caused the fracture.
