Fracture control and structural integrity (FraCSI) education and research

Fracture control and structural integrity (FraCSI) education and research Over the past six decades, fracture research has evolved into a coherent interdisciplinary field of research and education motivated by the need for structural integrity assurance and safe operation of components that are part of air, ground and water transportation systems and power generation systems. This paper explores opportunities and challenges that lie ahead and a strategy for meeting them. The design, material selection and choice of inspection techniques, inspection criteria and intervals are seldom considered concurrently leading to designs that often take more time from start to finish than afforded by product design cycle times particularly when new and innovative materials are involved in a competitive market place. This need must be addressed with a systematic approach to educating fracture control and structural Integrity (FraCSI) engineers; this paper explores this need and the case for shaping the field into an even more cohesive discipline. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Strength, Fracture and Complexity iospress

Abstract

Over the past six decades, fracture research has evolved into a coherent interdisciplinary field of research and education motivated by the need for structural integrity assurance and safe operation of components that are part of air, ground and water transportation systems and power generation systems. This paper explores opportunities and challenges that lie ahead and a strategy for meeting them. The design, material selection and choice of inspection techniques, inspection criteria and intervals are seldom considered concurrently leading to designs that often take more time from start to finish than afforded by product design cycle times particularly when new and innovative materials are involved in a competitive market place. This need must be addressed with a systematic approach to educating fracture control and structural Integrity (FraCSI) engineers; this paper explores this need and the case for shaping the field into an even more cohesive discipline.
