• Residual Stress Workshop 2023

Residual Stress Workshop 2023

27th - 31st March 2023 

Aim & Scope

The importance of accurately accounting for residual stresses in component integrity assessments is well-known, and universally accepted.  Equally, the need to validate numerical predictions of residual stress against high quality residual stress experimental data is now viewed as a necessity.  Significant advances and developments are continuously being made in the techniques available to measure and model residual stresses. This four-day workshop will further develop your understanding of the main residual stress measurement and modelling techniques through a series of lectures, laboratory demonstrations, facility visits and in-depth discussions. Acknowledged experts, leaders and pioneers in residual stress measurements and modelling will convey the basics, details and application “know how” of the most important and widely used techniques. The measurement and modelling aspects will then be brought together in a “case study” lecture to provide further insight. The applicability and usefulness of the techniques in industrial problems will finally be considered, putting theory into practice and so helping you improve your project outcomes by learning from others.

Programme & Format

The workshop is restricted to 30 delegates to ensure that core technical material may be delivered in a stimulating and lively environment. The workshop runs for four days, commencing at 9.30am on the first day (a Tuesday) and finishes at 2pm on the last day (Friday). It will be based around a series of 50-minute lectures provided by acknowledged experts, and laboratory demonstrations with no more than eight participants in each lab.
