4th Annual FENet Industry Meeting & AGM - "Materials Modelling"

The theme of the meeting was “materials modelling” or more specifically “How to categorise and analyse real material behaviour”. All industry sectors represented in FENET have identified this as an area of topical importance. It embraces a wide set of issues including constitutive modelling, data requirements, testing & test data processing, scale effects, data provenance, validation/qualification, Q.A. materials data bases, etc.

The meeting provided the opportunity for participants to share their experiences of how they are tackling these issues and to learn what is being done in various industry sectors, with 20 presentations illustrating the “state-of practice“ in each of the eight industry sectors represented by the FENET Thematic Network.

There was also a break out session when industry coordinators led an interactive discussion addressing simulation issues and overall technology requirements in their sectors.

Lisbon, Portugal

2nd - 3rd December 2004
