E08 Fatigue and Fracture
Title: Workshop on Multiaxial Fatigue & Mixed Mode Fatigue Crack Growth
Dates: Thursday November 13 2014
Location: Sheraton New Orleans; New Orleans, LA
Event Name: November 2014 Committee Week

Pre-registration requested to attend this meeting.

ABOUT THE EVENT

A Workshop on Multiaxial Fatigue & Mixed Mode Fatigue Crack Growth will be held Thursday, November 13, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E08.01 on Research and Education, the workshop will be held at the Sheraton in New Orleans, LA, in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of Committee.

Objective
ASTM committee E08.01 is sponsoring a workshop on multiaxial fatigue and fatigue crack growth as well as mixed mode fatigue crack growth testing. Areas of interest include modeling methods as well as characterization procedures for combined mode I, mode II and mode III fatigue, fracture and mechanical testing, under uniaxial or multiaxial loading. The purpose is to identify and explore existing test methods and to highlight a need for mixed failure mode characterization of metallic materials so that they may be included in relevant ASTM standards. Given that an ASTM testing standard exists on axial-torsion testing (E2207), this workshop also intends to attract more presentations on cruciform testing. In addition, researchers interested in applications of mixed-mode test data and development of mixed-mode crack growth and fracture criteria are also encouraged to respond. This workshop is an opportunity to learn about both new and existing test techniques as applicable to mixed mode loading fatigue, fracture or mechanical testing standards.
