Physics of Failure
Instructor: Dr. Julio Pulido

Engineers can only make systems reliable if they understand what makes them unreliable. The physics of failure is an engineering-based approach to reliability that begins with an understanding of materials, processes, physical interactions, degradation, and failure mechanisms, as well as identifying failure models. The training covers the previously described elements of the methodology.
