Fatigue Design 2017


The 7th Fatigue Design conference held in 2017 aims to present the most innovative approaches and scientific progress in design methodologies, tools, and equipment’s life extension, focusing on industrial applications. For this edition, a special focus is made on the relation between additive manufacturing and fatigue.

After USA in 2015, in respect to their advanced research works in the area of fatigue and fracture mechanics in the last decade, it has been decided to consider Italy as the “partner country” for this conference.


The selected topics concern the various aspects of fatigue design:

– experimental and numerical design and validation methods,

– damage tolerance and fatigue life,

– reliability–based approaches and probabilistic methods,

– fatigue under severe environmental conditions (corrosion, low temperature,…),

– nonlinear behavior and cumulative damage,

– fatigue of assemblies (mechanical, welded, adhesive-bonding,


– composites and elastomers,

– bio-mechanical and orthopaedic implant,

– contact fatigue,

– vibration fatigue,

– complex loadings,

– thermal and thermo-mechanical fatigue,

– taking into account manufacturing process in fatigue analysis

(effect of microstructure, welding, residual stresses,…),

– fatigue of Shape Memory Alloys,

– additive manufacturing.
