Forty-two peer reviewed papers present the latest research in:
Residual stress effects on fatigue and fracture
Multiscale and physics-based approaches
Reactor components and materials
Fatigue crack growth
Predicting the effects of elevated temperatures and environment
Fatigue and fracture of specific components, joining methods, surface treatments, and coatings.
Each of these areas presents their own challenges to the development and application of engineering approaches to predict the structural integrity and remaining life of systems.
