Symposia / General InformationE08 Fatigue and Fracture
Event Name: May 2014 Committee Week
Pre-registration requested to attend this meeting.
ABOUT THE EVENT
The E08 4th Symposium on the Evaluation of Existing and New Sensor Technologies for Fatigue, Fracture and Mechanical Testing will be held May 7-8, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, the symposium will be held at the Sheraton Toronto in Toronto, ON, Canada, in conjunction with the May standards development meetings of Committee.
New sensor technologies are used in fatigue, fracture and mechanical testing to determine a variety of properties that are subject to ASTM standards. As these standards are applied to practical applications, issues with existing and new sensors specified in the standards need to be resolved.
The 4th Symposium on the Evaluation of Existing and New Sensor Technologies is intended to provide a forum to disseminate state-of-the-art advances in sensor technology as well as identify the limitations of existing sensor technology as it applies to fatigue, fracture and mechanical testing.
This Symposium is an opportunity to learn about both new and issues with existing sensor technology as applicable to ASTM fatigue, fracture or mechanical testing standards.
The language of the symposium will be English.
