Last Booking Date for this Event
18th October 2017

The goal of the workshop is to identify ‘knowledge gaps’ or areas for improvement in FFS assessment procedures and to present methodologies that have been developed to narrow these gaps. It is intended that identification of these ‘gaps’ would allow an understanding of the current development needs for defect tolerance arguments in the FFS assessment procedures.

Presentations and discussions at the workshop on subjects such as environmentally assisted cracking mechanisms, creep, welding residual stresses, fatigue and fracture mechanics as well as techniques that have been developed to improve the understanding of these mechanisms. We will dig into the developments, new areas of research and effort that need to be addressed for bridging those gaps, based on the views of experts in industrial and academic organisations.

Who should attend
Engineers and researchers involved in the development and application of fitness-for-service assessment methods for metallic components containing real or postulated flaws, both in-service and at the design stage.

Registration includes Thursday and Friday 2-course self-service lunch and coffee breaks.

Please bear in mind that the number of delegates will be restricted to 60.
