The IUTAM Symposium on multi-scale fatigue, fracture and damage of materials in harsh environments is now over. A successful week of technical debate was had be all delegates, stimulated hy high quality papers and questions.
We would like to thank all who travelled to Galway and took part in the symposium. Selected papers will appear in two special journal editions; The International Journal of Fatigue and The Journal of Materials: Design and Applications. It is anticipated that these editions will be published early in 2018.
We are delighted to acknowledge the support provided by IUTAM. We would like to thank our sponsors including ESB International, The College of Engineering & Informatics and the Ryan Institute at NUI Galway. We also acknowledge the positive role played by Science Foundation Ireland and its support through the MECHANNICS project.
