The new ASM Handbook, Volume 11: Failure Analysis and Prevention is a valuable resource for failure analysts, engineers, and technical personnel who are looking to identify the root cause(s) of failures and to prevent future failures. The editors and hundreds of authors and peer reviewers worked tirelessly to revise Volume 11 from its 2002 and 1986 editions with the goal to provide the "go-to" reference for those confronted with the failure of a machine or component.

Volume 11 contains divisions devoted to the practice of failure analysis, tools and techniques, fatigue and fracture, environmental and corrosion-related failures, wear failures, and distortion. The emphasis is on general principles with the widest applicability to situations that the reader is likely to encounter.

For the specific considerations associated with common types of components, the companion ASM Handbook, Volume 11A: Analysis and Prevention of Component and Equipment Failures, is scheduled for publication in 2021.
