Failure analysis

Analysis Analysis


Analysis Analysis

Failure analysis is the process of collecting data and performing a logical, systematic examination to determine the root cause of a failure and how to prevent its recurrence in the future. Failure analysis can be performed on a single component or an entire system and can employ a wide variety of analytical and investigative techniques depending on the overall failure mode and scope of analysis. Domet can provide objective and professional investigation and documentation of the cause of failure and provide recommendations to avoid additional loss moving forward.

HuffmanTwo generations of Huffmans have cast two generations of Skippers.

The most visible - or, in this case, audible - contributions to our community is Skipper II, the cannon that is fired by the VPI Cadets when Virginia Tech's football team scores. The original Skipper, which was made under the auspices of Paul Huffman, Sr., debuted on Thanksgiving Day 1963.

The first blast from the cannon was so intense it rattled the glass windows in the sportscasters' booth at Victory Stadium in Roanoke. VPI won the game 35 to 20. A tradition was born. Click here for an account of the tradition of Skipper by October Sky author Homer Hickam. Skipper II, which was cast under the supervision of Paul Huffman, Jr., thundered into action October 1984 at the Homecoming game in Lane Stadium.
