This analysis gives the opportunity to rate the causes of failure of a metal component. it is the summary of all specializations in analysis and methodologies that, with metallographic microscopy, are used to get to the real causes of failure.

The failure can be due to overloads, chemical aggression, intrinsic aspects of materials or environmental factors or the participation of all this elements that has driven to the failure that was apparently unexplainable.

To a careful analysis executed with the proper instruments of the field and laboratory it is very unlikely to miss how or why of the failure of a structured design.
