Residual stresses must be considered in any structural integrity assessment, if only to demonstrate that they are insignificant.
Engineers must be aware of the techniques available for measurement, characterisation and testing. How can your organisation improve its methods for detecting and handling residual stresses? When do they matter?
Residual stresses form a self-equilibrating stress distribution that exists in the absence of any mechanical loading. They are created during fabrication or by any loading that causes yielding of the material.
Focusing on safety and integrity assessments, this seminar discusses creep and fracture processes relating to operation temperature, assessment and measurement with relevant for a range of industrial sectors and techniques, particularly to engineers working in:
- Nuclear power
- Conventional power
- Off-shore and marine
- Pressure systems
- Structural integrity
- Welding, casting and forging
Understand the measurement and characterisation of residual stress
Adapt practical applications of the latest tools and techniques to your organisation
Improve your performance in safety and integrity assessments
Predict the lifespan of structures and components more accurately
Meet, greet and network with key industry players and academic researchers
This seminar is relevant to a range of industrial sectors and techniques particularly to engineers working in the nuclear power, conventional poer, off-shore and mareine, aerospace, pressure systems, structural integrity and welding, casting and forging
