Third International Symposium on FATIGUE DESIGN and MATERIAL DEFECTS

September 19, 2017 – September 22, 2017

The concepts of defect tolerant design, developed more than 20 years ago, aim to cover the gap between simple stress-based design approaches with generous safety factors, the methods developed for fracture assessment of components and NDE requirements. The ability to predict fatigue properties and service life of components in relation to their manufacturing process is of special interest also for the modern Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, whose rapid evolution needs efficient tools for product development, fatigue assessment and component qualifications.

Following the successful symposia of Trondheim in 2011 and Paris in 2014, these topics will be discussed at theĀ Third International Symposium on Fatigue Design and Material Defects - 3, to be held in 19-22 September 2017 in Lecco, Italy.
