When you need failure analysis of welds, metallurgical determinations, alloy analysis or welding engineering, call WJMG™ to professionally address your weld failure cases.

Failure & Fault Analysis

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.

Welding design, procedures, processes and quality are critical in infrastructure items used on a daily basis to help millions of people. Misaligned components, worn-out mechanisms and extended service life must not succumb to unsafe conditions due to budgetary restraints or unrealistic installation schedules.

Failure Analysis Services

Numerous catastrophic failures of metals have been directly linked to weld defects with exponentially higher costs in lost lives, lost income and replacement expenses.
