For a general presentation of this subject you can look at our page on Welding Failures and on a related page on Welding Liability.

Please note that the following Resources are not limited only to failures of Weldments but deal with problems and procedures of investigations in general.

Root cause determination is the part of failure analysis that provides understanding on why the failure occurred and suggests means and procedures to avoid similar occurrences in the future.

A specialized body of knowledge is being built on the failures affecting mass production of electronic devices. Its advancements are reviewed in dedicated yearly Conferences. This aspect was left on purpose out of our interests.
