Failure Analysis

Role of Loads and Materials in Failures

CMP Engineers can carry out a complete analysis of the cause of failure of a large range of equipment. The firm has experience with a wide range of machines including vehicles, aircraft, opencut and underground mining machines, materials handling equipment and manufacturing machinery.

Types of failure examined include structural overload or fatigue, failure with gearing, failure of drives or hydraulics, or problems involving electro-mechanical systems. “Fracture mechanics” may be used to assess the potential life of items with known defects.
