Webinar Series - Understanding Why it Cracked: On-Site, NDT Crack Identification (January 14, 2021)

CINDE Member Webinar Series

Date: January 14, 2021
Time: 12:00pm EST
Duration: 60 minutes
Topic: Understanding Why it Cracked: On-Site, NDT Crack Identification
Presenters: Shane Turcott (Steel Image)

Understanding the nature of failure or cracking can help direct efforts in preventing repeat failures.  When broken parts can be removed, lab-based failure analysis can be used to determine the details of part failure.  Yet in many cases, such as when cracks are found on pressure vessels, destructive testing is not a viable option.  Field replications and metallography allows for on-site, non-destructive identification of the cracking mode.  This talk will summarize the uses of both failure analysis and on-site evaluation in support of inspection efforts.
