Failure analysis

Failure analysis

At the LRCCP, failure analysis activities are carried out in three major phases. The preliminary investigation aims to collect any information concerning the design, manufacture and use of the faulty element. It is carried out in close collaboration with the expert or manufacturer. Next, the appraisal program begins with a material assessment (physico-chemical condition of the material) and an analysis of the degradations (optical and electronic microscopy observations, fractography, etc.). This inventory is supplemented by a set of activities specific to the case being assessed. Finally, the conclusions: the results of the execution of the appraisal program are used to identify the causes of failure. The expert can thus determine the responsibilities and the manufacturer can implement corrective or preventive procedures.
