Partners from Politecnico di Torino present Fatigue4Light in the European Conference on Fracture
Fatigue4Light partners from Politecnico di Torino Andrea Tridello, Carlo Boursier Niutta, Massimo Rossetto and Davide S. Paolino have presented the project in the European Conference on Fracture 2022 (ECF23), which has taken place from June 27th to July 1st in Madeira (Portugal).
The talk was called “Methodologies for the estimation of the LCF-VHCF duplex P-S-N design curves”, and was given within the framework of the session 7A “TC03 Fatigue of Engineering Materials and Structures”.
In the presentation, our partners explained how the Maximum Likelihood Principle is exploited for the assessment of the design curves of datasets obtained through tests in the LCF-VHCF range, with the P-S-N curves showing a duplex trend.
The ECF23 event, which was set to take place in 2020 and was postponed due to the pandemic, is focused on research and innovation in the study of the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures for diverse applications, from civil and mechanical engineering or aerospace. It has gathered about 500 scientists and researchers from 40 different countries.
Politecnico di Torino is contributing to the Fatigue4Light project with advanced statistical methods to analyse fatigue data, by performing very rapid (ultrasonic) fatigue tests up to 108 cycles and, finally, by carrying out X-ray Micro-Tomography analyses to assess defect population in specimens and demonstrators
