Application of Technical Diagnostics

  • Horst Czichos


The objects of technical diagnostics can be illustrated by the life cycle of all man-made technical items: from raw materials to engineering materials and—via design and production—to structures and systems, and finally, to deposition or recycling, see Fig. 2.1.
