Failure Prevention – Designing to Prevent Mechanical Failure

Course Description

This course provides relevant information on the ways in which engineers can ensure there are not failures in the field. While applicable to any industry the information share is especially useful to those working in disciplines where the penalty for failure is high, such as aerospace & defense This course will focus primarily on parts, but the strategy is also applicable to assemblies and entire systems.

You will learn about the design process including requirements, design, analysis, testing, refinement, and eventually to the end product. You will also learn about defining failure, material behavior under load, failure modes, safety factors, fatigue, fracture mechanics, design approaches, inspection, and testing. with Interactive labs that can be done remotely will allow you to experience some of the concepts firsthand.
