Main Topics of the Conference Series

Crack growth can take place under both static and fatigue loading. The complete solution of a crack growth problem includes the determination of the crack path. The crack path in critical components or structures where crack propagation occurs can determine whether failure is benign or catastrophic. Knowledge of potential crack paths is also needed for the selection of appropriate non-destructive testing procedures.

Members of different industrial laboratories and scientists from all over the world contribute with presentations on any of the following topics (in the case of both static and fatigue loading):

Experimental Determination of CP, Theoretical Prediction of CP, Integrity Assessments based on CP Evaluation, Microscopic Aspects of CP, CP of Surface Cracks, CP of Short Cracks, Effect of Large Scale, Yielding on CP, Effect of Material Inhomogeneities on CP, Effect of Non-Proportional Cyclic Loading on CP, Effect of Environmental Conditions on CP, CP in Advanced Materials, Laboratory Methods of Controlling CP, In-Service Inspection of CP, Application of CP Concepts and Data in Design, CP in Additive Manufacturing Processes, Industrial Application of CP Concepts and Data.
