Material Failure Investigation and Analysis

NWNI Material Failure Investigations and Analysis

When a failure occurs, it is important to understand why in order to avoid recurrence. The team at Intertek investigates failures covering all manner of components and materials and involves other Intertek business units where necessary to provide a truly managed service. Their expertise extends to failure investigations and causation studies, often for the legal and insurance industry, supporting clients from the initial site assessment through to expert witness court appearances. Intertek’s specialist expertise assists in determining root cause, failure mechanism and whether it requires an engineering and/or management solution. 

Andrew Piercy, Principal Engineer at Intertek will be taking us through what constitutes material failure, explaining Material Failure Analysis, what it is and what it isn’t.  He will explain how they go about Material Failure Analysis, covering the processes and techniques and discussing various outcomes, utilising a number of case studies.
