Title: Workshop on User Experiences in Variable Amplitude Fatigue and Fracture Testing
Dates: Wednesday November 12 2014
Location: Sheraton New Orleans; New Orleans, LA
Event Name: November 2014 Committee Week
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.
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:
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.
