A page of the website was dedicated to this subject.
Hereafter are collected various resources available online, and a few more that can be purchased, to address the problems from different points of view and to show practical instances where the knowledge gained helped improve the state of the art.
It would be a pity to dismiss the opportunity to learn and to gain invaluable insight for future applications, only because the failed element must be repaired or substituted in the least possible time.
I would like to urge readers having first hand experience of such occurrences, where their investigations provided information useful to avoid future accidents, to send a short note on the lesson that was learned, for the benefit of all readers.
The addresses reported hereafter were live and correct at the time of their publication. There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.
Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms. If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.
If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.". These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise). If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines. In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.
If the information is important to you, you may save the selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference. You are welcome to forward this page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.
