IMechE Event: Improving Safety with Advanced Fracture Mechanics

15th May 2019 - 16th May 2019

Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London

Innovation in fracture mechanic testing methods is happening in research, however it is difficult for industry to adopt new methods quickly. As codes and standards such as BS7910and R6are updated, it is important for the power generation and nuclear industries to follow the direction of structural research to encourage the appropriate development of such codes based upon up-to-date knowledge. New testing methods have the potential to reduce costs, as well as reducing safety risks through predictive analytical testing of crack growth and initiation

The Institution's Improving Safety with Advanced Fracture Mechanics seminar will address the key challenges around the industry's adoption of new testing methods for fatigue monitoring, prediction and modelling.

Join IMechE in London and bridge the gap between academic innovation and industry applications, with case study insights and best practice from Wood PLC, EDF Energyand University of Manchester.

Ensure that your processes remain safe and are compliant with the latest regulations and codes, with input from TWIand DNV GL.
Take back new strategies for generating and accessing useful material data that will enhance your organisation's assessments and testing processes.

Early Bird ends 29 March 2019; for full event details and to book your place please visit the event website at
