Fatigue at High Temperatures
This workshop is aimed at engineers who are concerned with designing components that see mechanical loads at high steady-state temperatures, and components that see significant loads through constrained thermal expansion during thermal transients.
It is assumed that attendees have a general understanding of fatigue, from either theory or from test.
This Workshop will cover:
- An introduction to fatigue at high temperatures
- Components that see mechanical loads at high steady-state temperatures
- Physical influence of temperature on the microscopic failure of materials
- FE analysis techniques for high-temperature environments
- Appropriateness of linear-elastic or non-linear elastic-visco-plastic analyses within high-temperature environments
- Components that see significant loads through constrained thermal expansion during thermal transients
- Review of high-temperature fatigue testing
- Considerations for significant creep effects; Chaboche and Larson-Miller models
- The difficulty of measuring strain on a component at high temperature
- A brief demonstration using nCode GlyphWorks and DesignLife software with an opportunity to try the software out first hand
The workshop is independent and does not rely on concepts introduced in other workshops.
