In this case study, metallurgical analysis of defects encountered during forging of input shaft and stub axle has been done in detail. Hence, in order to find the root cause of failure & to study the different defects during forging process. Study was carried out, aim of the case study was to find out reasons behind the cracks, to study the process of forging and the defects encountered during the forging process. A complete failure analysis was done on rejected input shaft & stub axle which had developed defects during forging. Different parameters were taken into consideration and various tests were performed to find the reason behind the failure. In the end some corrective actions and suggestions will be provided in order to improve the process and to counter the reasons that cause cracking of input shaft and stub axle during forging.
