Ninth International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis
Partnering with the Chinese Failure Analysis Institution (CFAI) of the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES)
11-14 July 2021 | Fudan University, Shanghai, China
New dates announced: Ninth International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis has been postponed to 11-14 July 2021Read more here
As the spread of COVID-19 continues and the situation is still uncertain, Elsevier and the Conference Chairs have taken the decision to postpone the Ninth International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis to 11-14 July 2021. The conference will be held at the same venue in Fudan University, Shanghai, China.
We will continue to closely monitor developments, taking advice from the WHO and other agencies, but as the safety of our customers and colleagues is paramount, we feel it is pertinent to postpone until 2021.
Any pre-registered delegates will automatically be transferred to the new conference date in 2021 unless you notify us that you will not be able to attend on those dates.
New! 2019 Impact Factor for the conference supporting publication: Engineering Failure Analysis: 2.897
The ICEFA conference brings together world-class researchers, users and specialists involved in all aspects of failure analysis and prevention from the fields of mechanical, manufacturing, aeronautical, civil, chemical, corrosion and design engineering.

Engineering failure analysis as a key tool for the improvement of the modern innovation cycle now demands that component design involves a whole-of-life approach, incorporating an awareness of manufacture, safety, reliability, environmental sensitivity and disposal.
This has focused attention on the pivotal role of failure analysis as an essential tool to improve equipment availability, to help prevent accidents and disasters and to inform the processes of design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of key plant and equipment.
The strengths of past conferences have been the emphasis on practical application of technical knowledge to engineering failure analysis and the extensive use of case studies to the development of an understanding of engineering failures. The case study approach is strongly encouraged as an important mechanism for developing a body of knowledge well rooted in practical experience.
