RESIDUAL STRESS WORKSHOP
31st March / 3rd April 2020 (postponed due to Coronavirus threat)
New date to be confirmed.
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.

City of Bristol
Bristol is situated in a pleasant part of the UK. It is close to the famous cities of Bath and Wells, and the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds and the Mendips is within easy reach. Not too much further afield is South Wales and the South West peninsula of Devon and Cornwall. It’s easy to travel from other parts of the country to Bristol. Connections by road and rail are good, for example London is only an hour and a half by train or two hours by coach or car. Bristol also has its own airport with regular scheduled flights to other cities in the UK and Europe.
