Tools of Failure Analysis
Tools of Failure AnalysisCharacterization of the microstructure and of the fracture surface topology plays a prominent role in failure analysis. The most common tools for this are the eye and the optical microscope, the scanning electron microscope, and the transmission electron microscope. Their utilization is reviewed in this section. Less commonly used techniques are covered in the volume in the Ninth Edition of the Metals Handbook on materials characterization.4
Optical microscopy In an optical microscope (OM) utilized in fractography (and in metallography), ligh…
