Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to use their knowledge about damage mechanisms to:
   - apply the guidelines and procedures for clarifying faults and material-related manufacturing difficulties
   - define the procedure for the analysis and modify it based on interim results.
 
   - select the procedures to be applied and anticipate possible results.
 
   - interpret the results in the context of relevant literature, the circumstances and research results.
 
   - determine the primary cause of faults.
 
   - giveing advice on how to avoid faults.
