Common Failure Mechanisms

weak metal or improper welds can cause catastrophic failure and loss of lifeWelding defects, Inherent metal discontinuities, Machining defects, Low Cycle Fatigue, Brittle Fracture, Low Toughness at Design Temperature, Stress Risers, Corrosion, Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC), Hydrogen embrittlement, Creep, Stress rupture and other material specific failure modes.

WJMG™ experts specialize in “hands-on” failure analysis of exemplar and subject welds in all types of metals and plastics. We work in our own ISO certified laboratory or yours. We employ accurate tools and microscopy with published and proprietary procedures.

Failure & Fault Analysis

Metal Failures cause catastrophic incidents resulting in millions of dollars in wasted time and money as well as loss of life Failure analysis of welds is the collection, study and analysis of service conditions to assess possible causes of a break-down and the fault of the failure incident.

WJMG™ assessments have included the most likely cause of weld failures in pipelines, pressure vessels, tanks, transportation vehicles, mass-produced products and general construction defects which generally have large financial implications.
