Title: Thirteenth International ASTM/ESIS Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics (39th National Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics)
Dates: Wednesday November 13 2013 - Friday November 15 2013
Location: Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront Jacksonville, FL
Sponsored by: E08
Deadline for Abstract Submittal: Wednesday May 01 2013
Abstracts are invited for the Thirteenth International ASTM/ESIS Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics (39th National Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics), sponsored by ASTM Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture and the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS). The symposium will be held November 13-15, 2013 at the Hyatt Jacksonville in Jacksonville, Florida, in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of Committee.
Fatigue and fracture continue to be a concern in many areas of the industrial world. The prediction and prevention of fatigue failure is critical to safe and economic operation of machines in the aerospace and terrestrial transportation sectors, power generation, and a range of manufacturing industries. New, fundamental work is being conducted to incorporate more understanding of material characteristics on fatigue and fracture behavior modeling, e.g., the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Materials Genome Initiative. This thrust is stretching the limits of the current fatigue and fracture models and methods to be more robust, faster, adaptable, and accurate.
This symposium is intended to provide a forum for researchers from academic, industrial and government sectors to share, discuss, and debate the latest improvements in experimental and analytical understanding of fatigue and fracture. Broad, international participation is sought to make this a powerful forum to identify recent advances in fatigue and fracture and propel the community to develop more accurate models and experimental methods to predict and characterize a material?s fatigue and fracture behavior.
Areas of particular interest include:
- Residual stress effects on fatigue and fracture models and experiments
- Probabilistic methods for fatigue and fracture prediction
- Verification and validation of fatigue and fracture models
- Advanced experimental techniques that stretch the current fatigue and fracture standards
- Improvements in the state-of-the-art for predicting usable fatigue life
Both experimental and analytical researchers are encouraged to participate in the symposium.
The language of the symposium will be English.
To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit online the Abstract Submittal Form and attach a 250-300 word Preliminary Abstract no later than March 15, 2013. Scroll to the top of the page to "Go to Abstract Submittal Form". To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database system, please email email@example.com stating that your abstract was submitted.
Accepted authors will then be required to submit a 4 to 8 page Extended Abstract to the ASTM site no later than September 16, 2013. The collection of Extended Abstracts will be made available in electronic format to the authors and attendees on the day of the symposium. Publication of the Extended Abstracts should not preclude authors from submitting a complete technical paper in an ASTM journal or other journal at a later date. Reference to the Extended Abstract should be made in future papers if material from the abstract is used in the final paper at the author's discretion.
The Extended Abstracts will not be peer reviewed or copy edited so the authors should strive to submit material suitable for distribution at the meeting. The abstracts should be submitted as a Word file, single-spaced, with 1" margins using 12 pt. Times New Roman font for the text, tables, and figure captions. The abstract must include the symposium and paper title and authors' names with their contact information. All figures must be embedded in the text as a complete document (See Instructions for Extended Abstracts).
Please note that the Extended Abstract must be submitted in order to present at the Symposium.
An STP will not be published as a result of this symposium.
The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and abstract must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of its suitability for this symposium. Symposium co-chairs Andy Rosenberger, Sabrina Vantadori and Craig McClung will notify you via e-mail by March 22, 2013 of your abstract's acceptability for presentation at the symposium.
