    Twenty papers will aid investigators conducting failure analysis of advanced composite and metallic materials. Composites papers focus on failure of continuous fiber graphite/epoxy material systems, covering delamination propagation, the effects of impact and radiation damage, and the fracture surface characterization of notched laminates. Several papers on fractography of ferrous alloys cover steam turbine blading steels, pressure vessel weldments, fatigue damage in carburized steel, and ductile-brittle transition in austenitic stainless steels.
