Fractures, Fatigue and Forensics: the art and science of materials engineering
November 4: 12 pm to 1 pm MST
Presented by Colin Allison, P.Eng.

Material properties have intrigued people for ages, from the advent of stone tools, through the bronze age, to alchemical experimentation and still today. But what does turning lead into gold have in common with the failure of a PEX or copper water line in a house? More than you might think! Every material has strengths and weaknesses; in this webinar, our expert delves into the failures of a variety of materials, from metals to polymers, and what they can determine from the failure modes, circumstances and testing options. A variety of case studies will be used to explain the nuances of how a materials engineer can help answer your questions and give you the information you need to successfully resolve your files.

This webinar has been submitted for AIC continuing education credits in AB.
