Course Information

Materials under Stress - 19 - 23 March 2018


This is an intensive course covering the basic concepts of fracture mechanics and fatigue, with emphasis on practical applications for metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. The course is suitable for those with no previous formal introduction to the science of fracture and no prior knowledge or experience is assumed. All topics will be introduced from first principles and the emphasis will be on developing an understanding of concepts of fracture mechanics rather than presenting a "state-of-the-art" review. Lectures will be given by experts in the field with experience of teaching this material to practising engineers and materials scientists on post-experience courses.
