ASM International Announces New Affiliate Society for Failure Analysis


ASM International (ASM), the world’s largest association of metals-focused materials professionals, has launched a new affiliate society, the Failure Analysis Society (FAS). The society is dedicated to advancing the important role failure analysis plays in the materials science industry.

The new affiliate society emerged from an existing ASM committee that has long offered failure analysis programming and content. FAS will continue to provide collaboration, networking, and educational opportunities for materials science professionals. It will also continue to have its own technical programming at the annual Materials Science & Technology conference.

Journal of Failure Analysis and Prevention is the official journal of the Failure Analysis Society.
