This book fills the gap between failure analysis theory and the actual conducts of the failure cases. The book demonstrates the main methodologies that have evolved over time and includes examples from the 1970s to date. Engineering calculations and estimation of system stresses and strengths are given in the relevant chapters. It presents a wide range of cases studies, ranging from mechanical engineering, metallurgy, mining, civil/structural engineering, electrical power systems, and radiation damage.
