Alfred University’s Inamori School of Engineering will offer a short course for glass and ceramic engineers, scientists, and technicians entitled Fracture Analysis and Failure Prevention of Glasses and Ceramics from July 30-August 2. The hands-on course will cover the examination and interpretation of markings on fracture-exposed surfaces of glasses and polycrystalline ceramics, as well as the analysis of crack systems (fractography). It will also explore the use of fractography in failure analysis, strength testing and fracture mechanics testing. The course will use discussions, case studies, and examples to analyze links between fractography and failure prevention.

The course will be limited to 18 students. A course fee of $1,395 includes the “Fractography of Ceramics and Glasses” practice guide.
