Fatigue Design 2019: a full and diverse programme!

On 20 and 21 November 2019, the world’s fatigue experts will meet in Senlis, France, during the Fatigue Design 2019 congress. A new edition full of innovations and focused on the needs of the industrial world.

With 84 conferences and 300 participants, the eighth edition of the Fatigue Design congress will attract many people on 20 and 21 November 2019 in Senlis, France.

This eighth congress will be unique, first with its markedly international colour, with 21 nationalities represented, among which a large delegation from Japan. This 2019 edition will also focus strongly on industrial needs, with almost 70% of the participants coming from the industrial world and more than half of the conferences being given by industrial companies.

84 high level conferences

The main objective of this congress is to showcase innovative approaches and scientific breakthroughs in design and in the extension of the service lives of equipment and mechanical components. The conferences will focus on material testing as well as on theoretical studies performed to define the dimensions of a structure. It is also worth noting that this field is seeing continuous changes, with the integration of new materials as well as new manufacturing processes and assembly techniques. As a result, Fatigue Design 2019 will highlight the impact of additive manufacturing on the fatigue behaviour of materials. Four plenary lectures are on the agenda: “Defect analysis for additively manufactured materials in fatigue from the viewpoint of quality control and statistics of extremes”, “The Peak Stress method combined with 3D finite element models to assess the fatigue strength of complex welded structures”, “Fatigue design of additive layer manufacturing materials from computed tomography image”, and “Crack growth arrester using gourd-shaped insert plate”. In addition to these plenary sessions, the other 80 presentations (which will be held simultaneously, four at a time) will tackle the different aspects of fatigue design.

This year’s edition will also feature another new addition, namely a special training course on the fatigue of welded assemblies, given by Professor Pingsha Dong, an internationally recognised expert and Head of the Welded Structures Laboratory of the University of Michigan.
