Fatigue, Fracture and Creep of Engineering Materials and Structures

December 16 - December 27


The subtle changes in both properties and performance quantified either in terms of endurance; durability and damage tolerance are the salient phenomenon of fatigue. With rapid strides in the development and emergence of spectrum of advance materials and concurrent advancement in fracture machine methodologies, the concept of the sustained performance of the fatigue and ensuing fracture behavior or failure response has grown to emerge as a major area of the scientific and applied research cross-pollinating a spectrum of the disciplines to include materials science and engineering ,the aerospace engineering ,engineering machines, biomechanics and applied physics. With the increasing demands imposed on high performance materials the need for fatigue research has progressively gained increased importance. This course id structured with the purpose of presenting the principles and applications of the fatigue and fracture to materials and structures.

Course Objectives:

The design of structures must be both safe and sound to ensure the desired longevity or service life intended for the structure. Structures must be made from the material that can safely resist aging, withstand load spanning both static and dynamic (fatigue), environment-included degradation to include both oxidation and corrosion and even wear. Attendees will learn how to specify and select economically affordable & mechanical property conductive materials that will ensure long life for the intended structures while concurrently assuring a failsafe criterion. This course would provide the option of the selecting alternative materials to the traditionally used choice for structures of need and interest and having far reaching practical application.

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati:

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IIT Guwahati, IITG) is a public institution established by the Government of India, located in Guwahati, in the state of Assam in India. It is the sixth Indian Institute of Technology established in India. IIT Guwahati is officially recognised as an Institute of National Importance by the government of India.
