Motorcycle Axle Failure Now that summer is here, a lot of people are going to be dusting off their motorcycles and pulling them out of the garage for some good weather riding. Be sure to inspect the bike thoroughly though, as improper maintenance can lead to unfortunate results. J.E.I. Metallurgical, Inc. was requested to perform a metallurgical failure analysis to determine the cause of failure after the separation of a drive chain and rear wheel/axle from a custom motorcycle. Metallurgical Failure Analysis Metallurgical Failure Analysis is a scientific process in which a cracked or fractured piece of equipment or weld is analyzed to determine the cause of failure. Metallurgical failure analysis begins with visual examination, photo-documentation and microscopic examination. This non-destructive phase of examination may be followed by laboratory testing. The laboratory phase of metallurgical failure analysis involves cutting samples from fractured or cracked, conducting a microscopic examination of the fracture or crack, cutting, mounting and polishing samples for scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), microstructural examination, microhardness testing and profiling, chemical analysis, etc. The goal of the process is usually to ascertain why the component cracked or fractured, i.e., causation of the crack or failure.
