Kick-off meeting

CEN Workshop "Fatigue4Light advanced and fast fatigue testing methods"

September 22nd | 15.00h - 17.00h CEST, Online

This CEN/WS has the objective to develop two CWAs (Workshop Agreement) related to obtaining in a limited time the materials fatigue properties. The first one, so called self-heating measurements, is based on the evolution of temperature measurements under cyclic loading. The second one, so called stiffness method measurements, is based on the evolution of the damage during cyclic loading.

  • CWA 1: Fatigue testing. Self-heating measurements

The planned CEN Workshop Agreement establishes a testing methodology to determine the fatigue limit at shorter times and with a reduced number of specimens, by the evolution of the temperature of the specimen during cyclic loading to estimate the fatigue properties. The planned CEN Workshop Agreement is applicable to the materials considered within Fatigue4light project. Hence, AHSS, stainless steel, Al alloys and hybrid metal-FRP materials.

  • CWA 2: Fatigue testing. Rapid fatigue testing by damage control.

The planned CEN Workshop Agreement establishes a testing methodology to determine the fatigue limit at shorter times and with a reduced number of specimens, by the evolution of the stiffness of the specimen under cyclic loading. The planned CEN Workshop Agreement is applicable to the materials considered within Fatigue4light project. Hence, AHSS, stainless steel, Al alloys and hybrid metal-FRP materials.

All interested parties are invited to submit their registration form and the comments on the draft Project Plan to Workshop Secretary, Mr Rafael Postigo, rpostigo@une.org. Deadline: 10 September 2023.
