1st International Conference on Engineering Failure Anaysis (ICEFA-I)
|Event Date/Time: Jul 12, 2004||End Date/Time: Jul 14, 2004|
|Abstract Submission Date: Nov 01, 2003|
Paper and posters are invited which describe:
The analysis of engineering disasters, accidents and failures
Designing, manufacturing, operating and maintaining artefacts to avoid failure
Examples of technology transfer
The structure, properties and behaviour of engineering materials involving detailed application of material parameters to problems in structures, components and design.
Metallic, polymeric, ceramic and natural materials are all included, and the application of these materials to real engineering situations should be emphasised. The use of a case-study based approach is encouraged.
Representative subject areas are given below but are not exhaustive.
Marine and offshore
Power generation and distribution
Chemical and process plant
Sports and leisure equipment
Electronics device failures
Medical and surgical failures
Mining and mineral handling equipment
Architectural and building failures
Failure analysis and design
Repair and maintenance strategies
