Through The Looking Glass – Decoding Failures
Introduction to Metallurgical Failure Analysis & Fractography Workshop
1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
SAE International, Networking Room
755 W. Big Beaver Rd., Suite 1600, Troy

Diagnosing the precise cause of a failure is critical for developing cost-effective solutions that prevent repeat failures. Metallurgical failure analysis is a useful tool for supporting manufacturing, design, and quality efforts by providing details of component failures that would not otherwise be available.

This workshop will introduce the tools and concepts applied during lab-based failure analysis. In particular, the participants will get a hands-on introduction to fracture recognition using stereo microscopes. Fractured parts from case studies will be used to introduce ‘fractography’ using these microscopes and explain its role in failure analysis.

Instructor: Shane Turcott, P.Eng. M.A.Sc., Principal Metallurgist, Steel Image Inc.
Shane Turcott graduated with both a B.Eng and M.A.Sc in Materials Engineering from McMaster University near Toronto, Canada. He has performed failure analysis for over a decade, including employment at a steel mill, turbine repair facility, research center and a general metallurgical laboratory. In 2009, he started Steel Image providing failure analysis supporting manufacturing,
oil, and energy industries.

Student Engineer Day gives collegiate students the opportunity to spend a day on the job shadowing the routines of a practicing engineer in the student’s field of choice. This is a unique opportunity for students to gain insight into the engineering field and for companies to discover future engineering talent. Although the day is broad in scope, it still allows for individualization as students are matched with engineers who have similar interest. Participating students and engineers are encouraged to attend the Chevrolet Bolt EV Vehicle Event at the San Marino Club in Troy that evening from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Tickets are complimentary for Student Engineer Day participants and must be reserved by Tuesday, February 15.

Student Engineer Day may include a variety of activities, including tours, technical projects, hands-on experience and a chance to meet other colleagues. The format is flexible to meet the engineer’s schedule and is personalized to add a greater depth of experience for both the student and engineer.

This is open to SAE student members only. Students are responsible for their own transportation and for making the initial contact with their assigned engineer. Companies generally assume the cost of the student’s lunch. Participants will be notified by email prior to the event with respect to company/student placement.
