Fractography of brittle materials GPG15

Fractography can tell us why something broke. It can help us understand material or processing limitations, what features of materials need to be removed in order to improve their mechanical properties, and, sometimes, who is to blame for something going wrong. However, although fractography is backed up by the science of fracture, there are aspects which are down to skill and knowledge of the person undertaking the study, particularly the ability to recognise fracture markings.
