Aidy Ali

Dr. Aidy Ali is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM) or known as the Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM). He received his first degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Universiti Putra Malaysia in 1999. He pursued his PhD degree in the year 2003 with his research on “Improving the Fatigue Life of Aircraft Components by Using Surface Engineering” at Sheffield University. He was then appointed as a lecturer at the Universiti Putra Malaysia in 2006, was rapidly promoted to senior lecturer in 2008 and to associate professor in 2010 and was rapidly appointed as a professor in 2012, all within a 6-year period of time. Professor Aidy has more than 17 years of experience in research and teaching in the field of mechanical engineering, especially in mechanical fatigue and fracture of materials. He has published more than 140 journals in Scopus and ISI and 19 books and secured more than 24 research grants. He supervised 16 PhD degree students, 36 master’s students and 30 bachelor’s degree students. His expertise is related to mechanical materials for defence applications, fatigue, fracture of materials, failure assessment, failure prevention analysis, reliability engineering prediction and crash analysis.

This book covers recent advancement methods used in analysing the root cause of engineering failures and the proactive suggestion for future failure prevention. The techniques used especially non-destructive testing such X-ray are well described. The failure analysis covers materials for metal and composites for various applications in mechanical, civil and electrical applications. The modes of failures that are well explained include fracture, fatigue, corrosion and high-temperature failure mechanisms. The administrative part of failures is also presented in the chapter of failure rate analysis. The book will bring you on a tour on how to apply mechanical, electrical and civil engineering fundamental concepts and to understand the prediction of root cause of failures. The topics explained comprehensively the reliable test that one should perform in order to investigate the cause of machines, component or material failures at the macroscopic and microscopic level. I hope the material is not too theoretical and you find the case study, the analysis will assist you in tackling your own failure investigation case.
