ASM International fosters the understanding and application of metals and engineered materials and their research, design, reliable manufacture, use, and economic and social benefits. This is accomplished via a global information-sharing network of interaction among members in forums and meetings, education programs, and through publications and digital media.
The Minnesota Chapter of ASM International is located in the Twin Cities, Minnesota.
An one-day education symposium on
INTRODUCTION TO FRACTURE ANALYSIS
This workshop is a primer on the analysis of fractured components to determine the failure mechanism and identify other physical evidence that will assist in determination of the failure root cause. Basic concepts covered will include the process for fracture analysis, fundamental fracture types, interpretation of macroscopic fracture features, characteristic microscopic fracture features, and important ancillary features to look for during fracture analysis. Participants will learn to identify the mechanism, location of initiation, and direction of load application for simple fracture types. Case studies and hands-on examination of failed metal and plastic components will be used to demonstrate the principles presented.
