Mechanical Failure Analysis

mechanical failure analysis
ATS' mechanical failure analysis team is dedicated to helping individuals, corporations and manufacturers identify the root causes of component and system failures.

Our technically advanced labs enable our experts to perform accurate and efficient tests, incorporated in precise and detailed reports. With years of experience, our professionals perform daily inspections on a wide variety of mechanical failures which may include common fatigue and overstress failures to and unique failures.

Our services are prevalent among the automotive, aerospace, nuclear, manufacturing and military industries. Testing is performed per industry standards, including ASTM E2332, ASTM E3, ASTM E18, ASTM E384, ASTM E112, ASTM E10, ASTM A247, ASTM B487, ASTM B748, equivalent ISO standards, and applicable specialized procedures.

Tests Include:
  • Optical Factography
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Energy Dispersive Spectoroscopy (EDS)
  • Impact Testing
  • Tensile Testing
  • Shear Testing
  • Torsion Testing
  • Pressure Testing
  • Hardness Testing

Results May Reveal Mechanical Failures Due To:
  • Ductility Issues
  • Brittle Products and Components
  • Fatigue
  • Overload
  • Environmental Effects
  • Manufacturing Defects
  • Contamination
  • Corrosion
