Corrosion and Failure Analysis
Failure Analysis and Prevention (CRR 200)
The cause and prevention of failure of products and components damaged in service as a result of corrosion attack, material/mechanical deficiencies or improper manufacturing, installation and maintenance are described in this course
This course is designed for individuals seeking a profession in corrosion field at the level of a technician, technologist, skilled worker, or high school students who plan to pursue education in corrosion and inspection.
- General concepts and procedures used for failure analysis and prevention
- Types of fractures (ductile, brittle and fatigue fractures)
- Chemical and mechanical forms of failures (corrosion, wear and erosion damages)
- Failures of welded and soldered assemblies
- Failures of manufactured products (shafts, bearings, gears and mechanical fasteners)
- Failures of heat exchangers, boilers and pressure vessel components
Upon successful completion of this course the student will learn:
- Different types of mechanical and chemical failures occurred to the most common mechanical products and components
- The basics of the techniques used for failure analysis and prevention
