IV. Failure Analysis
Stereology, Electron Microscopy, Failure Analyses, Fractography, Light Microscopy, Materials, Metallography, Microstructure Investigation
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The conference meets every three years, rotating with other metallographic events, and has transcended the original focus on metals to consider many new materials and technologies as well as new methods in materials research. The 33 papers here cover steels, alloys, surface treatment and powder metallurgy, welding and creep-resistant materials, methods of research and analysis, and failure analysis. The topics include the influence of annealing temperature and time on the mechanical properties of selected steels for heavy forging, the structure of nanocrystalline nickel prepared by powder metallurgy, the influence of microstructural changes in creep resistant steel after long-term creep tests on the shape of the polarization curves, assessing cases of indicated defects in forging, and analyzing a cracked spring washer for sleeper-rail joints.
