Innovative Learning and Training On Fracture

NAFEMS was a partner in the project ILTOF - Innovative Learning and Training On Fracture – which was a Leonardo da Vinci European Union co-funded Pilot Project, part of the European Vocational Training Action Programme. Leonardo da Vinci Pilot Projects are aimed at designing, testing, evaluating and disseminating innovative vocational training and lifelong learning practices, and at promoting innovation in training as well as methodologies, contents, media, products.

ILTOF specific objectives were to improve the knowledge transfer process and to develop innovative learning methods with a particular focus on e-learning technologies in the field of fracture mechanics and structural integrity.

E-learning Courses

ILTOF objectives were pursued by developing a number of e-learning courses. For a limited period, these courses are available free of charge by following the links below:

  • Application of the Finite Element Method to Fracture Mechanics

  • Fundamentals in linear elastic fracture mechanics

  • Fracture mechanics and complexity sciences

  • Application of fracture mechanics, fatigue and creep principles to avoid or predict failure in engineering problems

  • Advanced applications of nonlinear crack models

  • Miscellanous
