Course Description

This is a one day workshop intended as an initial grounding in fatigue design approaches and testing methods. The main approaches to fatigue design will be outlined with an emphasis on the ways in which these approaches relate to the fundamental physical aspects of fatigue and to the requirements of different areas of engineering application. Attendance on this is useful preparation for the Introduction to the Strain Life Approach to Fatigue Design and the Introduction to the Fracture Mechanics Approach to Fatigue Design. Welcome and Introductions Introduction to Fatigue as a failure mode. Fatigue Loading Workshop: Cycle Counting Fatigue Design using S-N curves-Miner's Rule Workshop: Simple fatigue life assessment Design using S-N curves - Welded Connections Fracture Mechanics Approach Strain Life Approach 08.45-09.00hrs Registration. 17.00hrs Finish.
