Understanding and modelling fracture and fatigue of materials and structures

18-19 June 2016, Catania, Italy

Fracture mechanics and fatigue are broad disciplines dealing with the structural integrity of materials. Their importance in the design of traditional engineering materials and structures is well established, but their applications to new areas are constantly emerging. Nowadays, despite the wealth of literature and textbooks in the field, there is a need for schools which can convey the fundamental knowledge of fracture mechanics and fatigue to young generations in order to fully exploit the potential of the disciplines in understanding and modelling the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures, and in assessing their integrity.
Following the first edition in Trondheim, an ECF summer school will be organized in Catania, with four leading scientists presenting different issues in the field of fracture mechanics and fatigue The summer school is mainly aimed at PhD students, young researchers and engineers, but is naturally open to everybody. Participants will become acquainted with fundamental aspects, modelling and practical applications of fracture mechanics and fatigue. The program will contain lectures on topics related to fracture mechanics methods for the modelling of fatigue crack growth, to the role of fractography in the assessment of fatigue crack growth, and to hydrogen-induced and environmental cracking in steel. Moreover, a lecture on fatigue behaviour and assessment in contact mechanics problems will be offered. The summer school will terminate with a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art on computational methods for fracture.

 Summer School Venue: the Sheraton Hotel (the same of the ECF21)
