Topics

ICEAF VI will be the sixth event of a biennial conference series which commenced in Patras on May 2008 and gathers high-level scientists from all over the world. The scope of the conference is to attract interdisciplinary work dedicated to prevention of failure in engineering applications. It includes design, material, manufacturing, production, assembly, maintenance and repair, etc. Works are expected to cover a number of different technological areas including aeronautics and space, automotive, mechanical engineering applications, etc. Amongst others, the conference topics include:

  • Engineering alloys and metals for aerospace, land transportation, marine, power, electrical engineering and bioengineering applications
  • Novel engineering composites
  • Bio-based engineering composites
  • Recycling of structural composites
  • Nanomaterials: technology, properties and modeling fracture behavior
  • Smart materials and structures
  • Multiscale (nano, meso, micro and macroscopic) approaches to understand mechanical behaviour and fracture of engineering materials and structures
  • Damage tolerant microstructures
  • Damage tolerance of stiffened structures
  • Structural integrity and structural health monitoring
  • Fracture and fatigue of materials and structures
  • Surface engineering and coatings
  • Experimental studies on the relation between microstructure and mechanical fracture processes
  • Testing and control systems
  • Computational mechanics and analytical methods
  • Modeling and simulated assessment of biomedical systems and materials
  • Multi-scale and multi-physics computational simulation of structural response / model validation
  • Model validation by full-field experimental methods
  • Characterization of fractures
  • Environmentally assisted fracture
  • Integrated approaches for design, manufacturing and reliability of engineering structures
  • Joining technologies
