Fasteners Failure Analysis

Fasteners, both threaded and unthreaded can fail due to a number of variables such as Material Flaws, Manufacturing Defects, Incorrect Processing, Improper Application, or Structural Miscalculation. In addition, Fasteners may fail due to improper material selection, or poor installation practices such as improper torque application. Common heat treatment issues may also occur such as overheating, decarburization and quench cracks.

These variables can take place individually or in combination with other stresses, which can affect the integrity of a Bolted Joint and may cause failure.

We offer comprehensive Fastener Failure Investigations, Root Cause Analysis, recommend Corrective Actions, and enforce Preventive Actions to future recurrences.
