Two courses are offered. The Basic Course covers the fundamentals of fracture, stress- and strain-life, notches and stress concentrations and Variable Amplitude Fatigue. The Advanced Course covers topics such as multiaxial fatigue, advanced fracture mechanics, fatigue of weldments, and high temperature fatigue. In both courses we assume that the participant has a basic background in engineering mechanics and materials. We attempt to explain why certain models work for one problem and not the other. The focus of the short courses involve metallic materials.
These courses are available on-line in the Downloads section.
