Five experts from TWI are due to present at the Fatigue 2021 conference, which is taking place from 29 to 31 March 2021.
The online event will bring the international fatigue and durability community together to share knowledge and information to better understand the challenges of using advanced engineering simulation and modelling tools to complement sound test programmes and develop reliable and cost-effective products.
Advances in materials, manufacturing methods and tools are all pushing this field forward as new applications come to the fore and new test and measurement techniques are developed.
TWI’s experts will help explore the latest developments in engineering modelling and simulation, including design rules, fatigue probability testing, damage under loading, and crack growth behaviour.
Here is a list of the TWI presenters and the topics they will be covering:
- Developments in Fatigue Design Rules for Welded Joints - Dr Matthew Doré CEng MWeldI, Section Manager - Fatigue Integrity Management, TWI
- Probability of Fatigue Failure for Welded Joints by S-N Curve Method - Dr Xing Sun, Principal Project Leader - Fatigue Integrity Management, TWI
- Cumulative Fatigue Damage of Welded Joints under Variable Amplitude Loading – Xu Liu, Project Leader - Fatigue Integrity Management, TWI
- Failure Causes of an Additive Manufactured Ti-6Al-4V and Implications on Fatigue Design - Emre Akgun, NSIRC PhD student / TWI affiliate, Coventry University
- Study on Fatigue Crack Growth Behaviour in Stainless Steel 316L Manufactured by Laser Powder Bed Fusion - Mehran Shahriarifar, NSIRC PhD student / TWI affiliate, Coventry University
The event will also include discussions around test and measurement techniques, innovations in manufacturing, and developments in materials science, as well as the complex interrelations between all these topics that allow for improvements in fatigue performance, durability and structural integrity.
You can find out more and register for the 3-day event, which aims to provide a forum for engineers and researchers to exchange ideas around all areas of structural integrity, here.
