ASM Handbook Volume 11: Failure Analysis and Prevention
Click here for further information
If you are a manufacturing engineer, component designer, a materials failure analyst, or if you have a general interest in the nature and prevention of engineering failures, you will be interested in the new and substantial revision of ASM Handbook, Volume 11, Failure Analysis and Prevention. The new Volume 11, with a focus on the root causes of failure, describes the principles, practices, and analytical techniques of failure analysis, so that root causes are properly identified and corrected for the ultimate objective of failure prevention.
The newly reorganized Volume 11 begins with sections on the general engineering aspects of failure prevention with coverage on fundamental root causes, materials selection, and the role of design reviews in failure prevention and analysis. Additional sections describe failures related to metals manufacturing operations, and the increasingly important role of life assessment methods in failure prevention. This is followed by a series of additional sections on the failure analysis process, as well as the principles, practices, tools, and techniques used to perform and evaluate failure analysis work and the causes, mechanisms, appearances, and prevention methodology for the four classic types of failure (fracture, corrosion, wear, distortion).
