First International Conference=20

Computational Methods and Testing for Engineering Integrity=20


19-21 March 1996
Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA

Organised by:
Wessex Institute of Technology, Southampton, UK
and co-sponsored by
Dartec Limited, Stourbridge, UK


Assessing the engineering integrity of materials, components, structures
and systems is a fundamental requirement of engineering design and
analysis. The ubiquity of the computer and the development of
sophisticated software and testing facilities, have led to simulation
models which can reliably predict behaviour and performance of materials
and structures with a high level of confidence. As new materials and
simulation models are developed, it becomes even more critical to test for
engineering integri ty. The increasing success in simulating a wide range
of engineering problems requires the validation of these models against
experiment. The next important development is likely to be the ability to
use real time processing during an actual test, and a pply appropriate
simulation models to assess integrity. Such an approach would enable
concurrent engineering to be more effectively achieved, and improve
confidence levels in assessing engineering integrity. This applies just
as much to the testing of s oftware for life prediction models as it does
to obtaining experimental data on materials, components and structural
behaviour. The assessment of mechanical behaviour under various
environmental conditions is a specific area where computational methods a
nd testing needs to be integrated.=20


This conference aims to attract papers on all aspects of
computational methods and testing for engineering integrity. These will
include strategic issues, economic advantages, specific life predcition
and testing procedures, high and low cycle fatigue, f racture mechanics,
and simulation models.=20
