JCB Webinar on Designing for Weld Fatigue

Webinars 14 June 2022

JCB Exclusive Webinar: Designing for Weld Fatigue

The webinar will cover the fundamentals of fatigue in metallic structures with particular focus on welded structures. The aim is to:

  • introduce fatigue terminology
  • the features of welds that influence their fatigue performance
  • how this can be improved and help designers to avoid fatigue failures by design.

Also, included will be some of the common techniques used for fatigue life improvement.
