SICLA 2017


This well established course incorporates the most recent advances in the subject of fracture and damage based structural integrity for high temperature component lifetime assessment under static and cyclic loading conditions. It aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the latest procedures for assessing the load carrying capacities of cracked and uncracked components so that criteria for their safe use and replacement can be specified using damage and fracture mechanics concepts. Developments in testing methods, data analysis, failure criteria, finite element modelling, residual stresses and geometry/material constraint will be examined. The methodologies described have been established in EU and many other countries. Reference will be made to Internat ional codes dealing with crack growth test procedures.
