Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Failure analysis is the key to provide the reasoning of failure based on structural characterization, properties determination, as well as their correlation. But, the most important advantage of failure analysis is the ability to assess mistakes that could be corrected or avoided.

However, the scientific interest behind the commercial – market importance raises the interest of scientists that try to understand in details the reasons of metal failure. This Special Issue is devoted to ferrous and non-ferrous compounds. Industrialists and Researchers are equally invited to contribute in it. We aim at having it as a reference sum of articles, that may aid the newcomer in the field, as well as the expert of metal failure analysis. Moreover, failure analysis and assessment of structural integrity of additively manufactured components gained significant attention as these are key toward robust and widespread application of those novel processes and unprecedented structures. Thus, papers related to this topic are highly encouraged.
