NT2F16

16th International Conference on New Trends in Fatigue and Fracture

Dubrovnik, Croatia, May 24 - 27, 2016

Summer School

Fatigue and Fracture Modeling and Analysis of Materials and Components

23rd – 24th May 2016, Dubrovnik, Croatia

The Summer School provides an opportunity for young scientists, researchers and engineers from academy and industry to get acquainted with fundamental aspects of fracture mechanics, recent trends in practical applications of fatigue and fracture models, and advanced approaches such as multiscale materials modeling. Senior researchers and experts will give lectures on experimental and numerical techniques for modeling, analysis and assessment of damaged components and structures. Particular attention will be given to determining and analysis of crack extension in pipes, where the standard and new methods will be examined. Examples on multiscale modeling used in analyzing pipeline steel weldments, metal/ceramic interfaces and fatigue problems will be given. Models for fatigue crack growth prediction and remaining fatigue life assessment will be presented.
