    About the Event

    A Workshop on User Experiences in Variable Amplitude Fatigue and Fracture Testing will be held Wednesday, November 12, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, the workshop will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, LA, in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of the committee.

    Objective
    Recent standardization work resulting in the new ISO Standards - ISO 12110 Parts 1&2 on Variable amplitude Fatigue methods, has brought to light a need for what could perhaps be a third part of this standard focused primarily on the actual processes of conducting variable amplitude tests.

    A one day workshop will be held during the fall 2014 E08 Fatigue and Fracture Committee week meetings in New Orleans that would focus on the testing process and considerations around conducting variable amplitude fatigue and fracture tests. Topics for this workshop would include:

    • Testing procedures
    • Test metrics for determining goodness of the test process
    • Applied variable amplitude sequence considerations
    • Dynamic loading verification considerations
    • Testing system operation, tuning, setup, and compensation techniques
    • Pre- and Post- test analysis considerations
    • Applicability of the new ISO 12110 standards
    • Other topics pertinent to the items noted above

    The general intent of the workshop is to generate dialogue and information that could potentially be used going forward to create guidance in the form of a standard for properly conducting variable amplitude fatigue and fracture tests.
