Metallurgical Failure Analysis

Fusion Engineering’s multi-disciplinary team of engineers and scientists have performed thousands of failure analysis investigations involving equipment such as transportation equipment, cranes, power and process equipment, industrial machinery, consumer products, construction materials, oil and gas piping and equipment, plumbing and HVAC equipment, and medical devices.

Interdisciplinary teams are essential for performing most root cause failure analyses, since the root cause is rarely the result of a single variable. Understanding not only the metallurgical properties but also the stresses and environmental and physical inputs to a system or component is vitally important in determining the cause of a material failure. Fusion Engineering’s team of metallurgical engineers and failure analysts are widely known for their expertise and ability to solve complex problems.
