Course Detail: SFII - Structural Failure Identification in Aircraft Accident Investigation

Overview

This course is designed to teach the participant the fundamentals required to identify failure modes of aircraft/engine components at the aircraft accident/mishap site. It can be completed independently and can be applied toward the Certificate of Management in Aircraft Accident Investigation.

Who Should Attend

  • Civil and Military Aircraft Accident Investigators
  • Aircraft/Engine manufacturers and maintainers
  • Aircraft/Engine owners and operators

Course Objectives

The participant will learn about structures and properties of aircraft materials and how they dictate the failure mode (overload, fatigue, stress-corrosion, etc.) of aircraft/engine components when operated outside their design specifications. The participant will then learn how to visually (1x-10x) identify failure modes to determine whether failure of the aircraft/engine component was the cause or result of the aircraft accident/mishap.

Technical lectures in basic metallurgy and composites, classroom exercises, crash laboratory exercises, and materials laboratory exercises all utilizing actual failed aircraft/engine components will help the participant achieve the goals of efficiently and quickly identifying failure modes encountered at the accident/mishap site with or without a 10x magnifier. This course can be applied toward the Certificate of Management in Aircraft Accident Investigation.

Who Should Attend

  • Civil and Military Aircraft Accident Investigators
  • Aircraft/Engine manufacturers and maintainers
  • Aircraft/Engine owners and operators

Cancellation Policy

A cancellation charge of $100 will be assessed on any standard cancellations. A late cancellation charge of 25% of the course registration fee will be assessed on cancellations occurring within 14 days of the start of the course.
