Providing a practical understanding of fatigue and fracture calculations, this course is intended for engineers who are required to perform such calculations, or who specify or evaluate testing and draft fatigue or fracture portions of design requirements. It covers the latest methodologies such as weight functions and the failure assessment diagram (FAD) approach. Related subjects such as damage tolerance analysis, reliability, and risked-based inspection will also be discussed.
Participants receive the textbook, Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications, by Ted L. Anderson.
You Will Learn To
- Explain the underlying assumptions and limitations of fracture mechanics
- Describe the process for material selection for fatigue and fracture resistance
- Explain how to perform simple to moderately complex fracture mechanics calculations
- Identify codified procedures for flaw evaluation
