Seminar of Dr. Gustavo M. Castelluccio from Cranfield University (UK) , entitle “Physics-based models for fatigue damage” – October 17th at 1:00 pm, in the Seminar Room

Abstract: Physics-based models for fatigue damage. Fatigue failure prognosis requires understanding the mechanical response of materials under myriads of service conditions. Most approaches that predict the response of metals rely on correlations between phenomenological formulations and macroscopic measurements, which demands
