FKM Linear (English)

FKM Linear Training Course

Forschungskuratorium Maschinenbau
/ Research Committee Mechanical Engineeering

29 - 30 October 2024, online

Language: English


This seminar covers the ”FKM-Guideline Linear” for static and cyclic loading. Besides the detailed assessment procedures, background on the individual topics will be given for better understanding about the procedures. This seminar aims on newcomers in that field as well as experts interested in the concept of the internationally widely accepted guideline.
