Residual Stresses: When do they matter?


This is a follow-on of two previous events which were successfully held on the same subject (in 2010 and 2008). It will cover measurement and calculation of residual stresses and their influence on structural integrity.    

Attending this event will help you:

Develop your knowledge of measurement by neutron diffraction methods  
Learn about different modelling techniques 
Understand the methods of stress relief cracking  
Obtain updates on these topics from experts on the state of the technology for structural integrity assessment 
Share experience with practitioners and experts in the field 
Improve performance in safety and integrity assessments 
Choose the perfect materials at the design stage – save time and money later 
Make designs more tolerant to damage 
Prioritise equipment for upgrade 
Learn from the lessons in Europe in the last ten years 
Meet, greet and network with key industry players
