The tenth biennial International Conference on Fatigue Damage of Structural Materials will be held in scenic Cape Cod at The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis, Massachusetts from the 21-26 September 2014.
This prestigious and long running conference will bring together delegates from around the world to discuss how to characterize, predict and analyse the fatigue damage of structural materials.
The traditional and well-received single oral presentations will allow sufficient time for follow-up discussions, friendly debate and relaxed participation.
The entire conference program is deliberately scheduled with equal significance to our poster sessions, themed in relation to the oral presentations and assessed for certificated awards via a process of peer review.
This is a significant opportunity for you to join colleagues from around the world to exchange and discuss new ideas and findings and to present your work as a poster or oral presentation.
The conference will be covering the following themes:
Structural metals and alloys pertinent to the aerospace, marine, off-shore, power generation and land based transportation industries
Novel experimental methods to characterise fatigue damage and crack growth
Overload/underload, arbitrary loading sequences, service spectrum loads, combined HCF/LCF
Residual stress effects on fatigue damage and crack growth, measurement of internal stresses
Extreme environments, including the effects of corrosion, oxidation, abrasion, elevated or cryogenic temperatures
Innovative theoretical approaches, computational and analytical methods
Life prediction methodologies for structural metals and alloys
Fatigue mechanisms in advanced alloys and metallic systems
Micro-structurally short cracks
