The Failure Analysis of all Things Material


EAG Laboratories is a world leader in failure analysis services. We support customers by investigating the root cause of a material failure, and can act as an expert witness in a legal investigation to determine who is at fault in a liability case. From raw materials to the end product, we offer a comprehensive suite of testing techniques to determine a materials failure.

What is Failure Analysis?

Failure analysis uses data to determine the root cause of a failure using various analytical techniques. Firstly, the investigation typically involves testing failed components to determine the area of the breakage. Secondly, further analysis is used to identify potential reason for the failure to occur. Nondestructive testing methods are sometimes utilized at the early stages of a failure investigation to allow for more tests to be made on a material.
