Start: 13 Nov 2019

End: 15 Nov 2019

  • Details zum Event


    Components in the Aerospace, Power and Automotive engineering sectors are frequently subjected to cyclic stresses induced by thermal fluctuations and mechanical loads. For the design of such components reliable material property data are required which need to be acquired using well accepted and reproducible testing procedures. The 4th TMF-Workshop will be held in conjunction with the final meeting of the research project DevTMF which deals with TMF crack growth and is funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 and Clean Sky 2. The intention of the present event is to continue the exchange of knowledge in the TMF regime. It provides a forum to present and discuss all recent developments in the field of thermo-mechanical fatigue.

    The European DevTMF Project

    In this project the experimental techniques of TMF crack growth and the predictive tools to characterize the thermo-mechanical fatigue behaviour and damage mechanisms are being developed in two Nickel-base superalloys. It has 3+1 project partners, a run-time of 48 months and ends in January 2020. The partners are Linköping University Sweden, Swansea University, UK, Nottingham University, UK and Rolls Royce plc, Derby, UK. The achievements of the project will be presented on the workshop.
