Improve safety and reliability
whilst reducing cost and eliminating waste through the adoption of innovative manufacturing
methods and standards. This seminar looks across power and transport
It is vital that the structural integrity can be demonstrated and meet standard as advanced manufacturing methods are being adopted into high risk and regulated industries. This seminar looks across power and transport industries including nuclear, automotive and aerospace
The Optimising Structural Integrity seminar will address the challenges around the industry adoption of new testing methods and advanced manufacturing techniques, bridging the gap between academic innovation and industry application.
Attendees will gain a clear understanding of new testing and modelling methods that will improve the prediction and monitoring of structural integrity of advanced manufactured components. Join to hear case study insights from engineers who are adopting innovative advanced material and manufacturing technologies and modelling solutions to reduce risk and obtaining more reliable assets.
New methods such as additive manufacturing, electron beam welding and powder metallurgy hot isostatic pressing (PM HIP) have the potential to improve component performance and reduce the cost implications of in-service failure. However, the main barriers to the widespread adoption of advanced manufactured parts, such as the lack of understanding regarding reliability and testing methods, must be addressed. It is important for industry follow the direction of structural research to encourage the appropriate development of such testing methods based upon up-to-date knowledge.
This seminar will seek to address the topic in a holistic manner which is not covered elsewhere, enabling attendees to improve reliability while reducing cost and eliminating waste.
ATTEND THIS EVENT TO:
- Learn about material and manufacturing technologies which improve structural integrity whilst reducing waste and reducing cost
- Understand code developments which can be utilised to support introduction of new technologies in high integrity regulated industries
- Gain an understanding of the contribution made to overall structural integrity from different key contributing technologies
- Discuss the direction of travel of codes and standards and anticipate what advantages these may deliver in the future
- Review research in the field of manufacturing technologies and gain the opportunity to participate in and benefit from these research items
- Hear about and share latest development in codes and standards, manufacturing methods and materials technology
- Network with other industries sharing similar challenges, such as automotive, nuclear and aerospace, and obtain transferable insights
- Meet and discuss with structural integrity experts, leading academic, research and test centres and end users across industry
- Understand how adopting new manufacturing methods can assist in saving costs and man-hours, reduce maintenance needs and guarantee safety

WHY OUR SPEAKERS ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE CONFERENCE:
||"It is important, as professional engineers, to keep abreast of developments in your field, and this session should provide an excellent opportunity to discuss these developments with your peers and experts from across industry."
Graeme Horne, Frazer-Nash
|"Broadening your knowledge is an important part of development – no matter what stage of your career. There are many different industries where advanced manufacturing can make an impact over the next decade, discussing the opportunities (and challenges) between industries (and specialisms) can provide valuable insight to overcome the hurdles within each industry."
Adam Cooper, Wood Group
||"In my experience it is vital to share information and experiences, for knowledge transfer among the engineering and research community for successful innovation and adoption of new technologies. Cross-discipline and cross-sector knowledge, and communications among the academia and industry are very valuable in the application of new technologies."
Xiang Zhang, Coventry University
