Component failures result from a combination of factors involving materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, corrosion, and tribology. With the right guidance, you dona€™t have to be an authority in all of these areas to become skilled at diagnosing and preventing failures. Based on the authora€™s more than thirty years of experience, Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability is a down-to-earth guide to improving machinery maintenance and reliability. Illustrated with hundreds of diagrams and photographs, this book examines... Am When and how to conduct a physical failure analysis Am Basic material properties including heat treating mechanisms, work hardening, and the effects of temperature changes on material properties Am The differences in appearance between ductile overload, brittle overload, and fatigue failures Am High cycle fatigue and how to differentiate between high stress concentrations and high operating stresses Am Low cycle fatigue and unusual fatigue situations Am Lubrication and its influence on the three basic bearing designs Am Ball and roller bearings, gears, fasteners, V-belts, and synchronous belts Taking a detailed and systematic approach, Practical Plant Failure Analysis thoroughly explains the four major failure mechanismsa€”wear, corrosion, overload, and fatiguea€”as well as how to identify them. The author clearly identifies how these mechanisms appear in various components and supplies convenient charts that demonstrate how to identify the specific causes of failure.Handbook of Materials Selection for Engineering Applications, edited by G.
