Abstract
Investigating equipment failures is one of the key roles of the reliability team. Instead of guessing how a part failed, its fracture features can be studied and the failure mode diagnosed. This talk will introduce how mechanical fracture features of steel failures can be recognized, then how diagnosis can help direct an RCA investigation. Brittle fracture will be used to illustrate the logic sequence applied in diagnosing, understanding why something failed and applying this information towards developing effective solutions.
