Ontario Chapter Technical Presentation: Understanding Why it Cracked: On-Site, NDT Crack Identification

Understanding Why it Cracked
On-Site, NDT Crack Identification
Understanding the nature of failure or cracking can help direct efforts in preventing repeat failures.  When broken parts can be removed, lab-based failure analysis can be used to determine the details of part failure.  Yet in many cases, such as when cracks are found on pressure vessels, destructive testing is not a viable option.  Field replications and metallography allows for on-site, non-destructive identification of the cracking mode.  This talk will summarize the uses of both failure analysis and on-site evaluation in support of inspection efforts.
Speaker: Shane Turcott (Steel Image)
