EAF in Metallic Structures: INCEFA+ Final Seminar & Workshop

October 21 - October 23

PLEASE NOTE: The Seminar has been shifted to October 2020 due to the Corona crisis! The new date is not yet known.

The seminar will provide insights on environmental fatigue phenomena, the existing assessment methods, and an overview of the INCEFA-PLUS project, including its main findings and results. It will also provide discussion on the future of environmental fatigue assessments and the remaining gaps in the field.

Audience: PhD students; professional engineers and researchers working in the fields of fatigue, environmental fatigue or structural integrity; highly experienced researchers and engineers wishing to update their knowledge and share experiences.

Fee and registration: There is no fee, but registration until March 30, 2020 is mandatory!
