Failure Analysis

Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Reliability Engineering book series (RELIABILITY)

Abstract

This chapter discusses methods that can be applied in the analysis of failures. Existing methods are discussed, and an integrated approach based on utilizing the knowledge on loads and failure mechanisms is introduced. The method is demonstrated on a real case study. After the treatment of the analysis methods, background information and procedures to assist in assessing the failure mechanism of a failure at hand will be provided.
