Not all failures can be investigated through simple visual inspection. In order to determine the cause of a particular defect or failure, K.J. Beer can examine the microstructure of the affected materials.
Metallurgical assessments may involve surface replications followed by microscopic examination of the microstructure.
K.J. Beer specialises the following, using metallurgical methods where applicable:
- Failure analysis
- Root Cause Analysis
- Microstructure Analysis
- Surface Replications
- Fatigue Assessment
- Remaining Life Assessment
