Failure Analysis Due to Metal Fatigue Failures and Determining the Cause of Fatigue Failure

Our PhD level staff has over 35 years experience in Failure Analysis of a wide variety of materials including metals, ceramics, cement/concrete and semiconductors. Utilizing state-of-the-art analytical techniques and equipment, H&M is well situated to solving your component and processing problems and determining the cause of fatigue failure. Our capabilities include metallography, SEM/EDS, XRD, XRF, FTIR, tensile testing, hardness testing, and surface analysis. Among our previous projects are analyses of:

  • Coatings
  • Biomedical devices and materials
  • Corrosion products
  • Metal components (gears, shafts, bearings, etc)
  • Cutting tools
  • Composites and laminates
  • Electronic components and materials
  • Construction component failures
  • Forensic investigations
  • Fatigue failures
