EMAT 569 - Failure Analysis & Design Life

3 credits (Hrs: 3 Lec.)
Application of the principles of physical and mechanical metallurgy to failure analysis. Methodologies are developed to solve failures including an analysis of stress state and loading. Fractography is characterized for different types of failures. Models for crack initiation and crack propagation are presented. Fatigue S/N curves and fracture mechanics are used to predict design life. The role of corrosion on design life is considered. Principles of nondestructive evaluation are introduced. Case histories of past failures are reviewed and analyzed. Student must prepare an extensive literature review on a select topic.

Prerequisite(s): Senior or Graduate Standing and Consent. Offered on demand.
