We provide failure analysis services through a multi-disciplinary method of investigating materials and operational issues – often with finite element analysis– developing solutions to ensure structural integrity.
Production equipment, field failures or other heavy machinery failures can be very costly or even catastrophic for a business – we save you time and money by resolving materials, corrosion, vibration, fatigue, or other issues.
Root Cause Failure Analysis
Components not meeting their intended design life, or accidents and failures often result from factors including:
We offer a full spectrum of metallurgical testing to evaluate the root cause of component failure, performing corrosion investigations, surface condition studies, mechanical testing, and evaluations of weldments. This testing includes:
>> Failure Analysis & Redesign of a Fracking Pump
>> Failure Analysis on Cracked Tube to Tubesheet Welds on Chemical Reactor
>> Stress Corrosion Mitigation
>> Links of Resources
While a tractor was cutting grass along an interstate, its left rear axle fractured, causing the left rear wheel to totally separate from the tractor. We were asked to investigate the cause of the failure.

Learn from the experience of others. Especially when one such “other” is Dr. William O’Donnell, PhD, PE, Founder and President of O’Donnell Consulting Engineers, Inc., and ASME “Engineer of the Year” - his 50 years of experience in analysis of components including fatigue and fracture safety evaluations and failure analyses are now comprised in this volume.
If you are interested learning more in Engineering Design, Manufacturing and Construction, as well as Failure Analysis, then this book is a must have!
