Whiteboard Discussion: Damage Mechanism Review (DMR) Considerations

By Greg Alvarado, Chief Editor at Inspectioneering. January 22, 2024


A Damage Mechanism Review (DMR) is a systematic evaluation process used to identify credible damage mechanisms that impact assets within facilities, particularly in the context of corrosion, cracking, and material degradation. A DMR serves as a crucial component of a comprehensive inspection program, whether conducted within a traditional inspection program or aimed at identifying and assessing the risks associated with various damage mechanisms.

Inspectioneering's latest Whiteboard Discussion video features Greg Alvarado, Chief Editor at Inspectioneering. Watch as Greg discusses and visually illustrates DMRs, the considerations, and what should be in a report.
