Abstracts are Invited for Thirteenth International ASTM/ESIS Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics
W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., —Abstracts are invited for the Thirteenth International ASTM/ESIS Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics (39th National Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics), sponsored by ASTM International Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture and the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS). The symposium will be held Nov. 13-15, 2013, at the Hyatt Jacksonville in Jacksonville, Fla., in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of Committee E08.
Fatigue and fracture continue to be a concern in many areas of the industrial world. The prediction and prevention of fatigue failure is critical to safe and economic operation of machines in the aerospace and terrestrial transportation sectors, power generation, and a range of manufacturing industries. This symposium is intended to provide a forum for researchers from academic, industrial and government sectors to share, discuss and debate the latest improvements in experimental and analytical understanding of fatigue and fracture.
Broad, international participation is sought to make this a powerful forum to identify recent advances in fatigue and fracture and propel the community to develop more accurate models and experimental methods to predict and characterize a material’s fatigue and fracture behavior. Areas of particular interest include:
• Residual stress effects on fatigue and fracture models and experiments;
• Probabilistic methods for fatigue and fracture prediction;
• Verification and validation of fatigue and fracture models;
• Advanced experimental techniques that stretch the current fatigue and fracture standards; and
• Improvements in the state-of-the-art for predicting usable fatigue life.
To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit online the Abstract Submittal Form at www.astm.org/E0813thASTM-ESIS11-13 and attach a 250-300 word Preliminary Abstract no later than March 15, 2013. The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published.
Accepted authors will then be required to submit a 4-8 page Extended Abstract to the ASTM site no later than Sept. 16, 2013. The collection of Extended Abstracts will be made available in electronic format to the authors and attendees on the day of the symposium. Publication of the Extended Abstracts should not preclude authors from submitting a complete technical paper in an ASTM journal or other journal at a later date. Reference to the Extended Abstract should be made in future papers if material from the abstract is used in the final paper at the author's discretion. Please note that the Extended Abstract must be submitted in order to present at the Symposium.
