Fractographic Analysis

Home / Services & Industries / Testing Services

IDENTIFYING FRACTURE ORIGIN IN METALLIC MATERIAL

Metallic materials used in various products commonly break due to their surrounding environment. The cause of breakage can only be determined after observing the material and accurately analyzing the fractured surface. Fractography has become increasingly important as infrastructure and quality control issues cause problems.

When material failure involves actual breakage, fractography investigates how metallic materials have fractured (fractured surface pattern or fracture shape) by identifying the fracture origin, the crack propagation direction, failure mechanism, material defects, environmental interaction, and the nature of stresses.

Studying the fractured surface’s characteristics can help determine the cause of failure in an engineered product. Our expert testing team analyzed dimples and slips on the fracture’s surface to decide whether or not it was caused by corrosion fatigue, stress corrosion, or a stress fracture caused by fatigue, brittleness, ductility or creep. The direction of the break can also usually be determined, providing valuable information about the amount of stress and load the metal part can withstand.

Different failure modes produce characteristic features on the surface, allowing a forensic analysis to determine the root cause of the failure.
