Thread failure of bolt and nut assemblies subjected to tension is generally undesired because it is a less ductile failure mode than fracture of the threaded shank of the bolt (denoted bolt fracture).

Three Reasons to Perform Failure Analysis | Element

There are various methods that failure analysts use – for example Ishikawa "fishbone" diagrams, failure modes & effects analysis (FMEA), or fault-tree analysis (FTA). Methods vary in approach, but all seek to determine the root cause of failure by looking at the characteristics and clues left behind. So suppose you have a product failure.
