We are delighted to announce an IUTAM symposium to be held in Galway in August 2017 that will provide a forum for discussion on the latest developments on multi-scale fatigue, fracture and damage of materials in harsh environments. Engineers and scientists face additional significant challenges today, including the responsibility for sustainable use of earth’s resources, in the context of climate change and global warming. However, state of the art technology provides the opportunity to address such challenges through ingenious use of multi-scale experimental, theoretical and computational methods for detailed and accurate analysis and design against failure, adoption of multi-physics techniques for more realistic simulation and prediction of environmental, industrial and operational conditions.
Preparations for the symposium are now well underway. We are delighted to have an outstanding set of keynote speakers and have received many high quality abstracts for the symposium. So there is sure to be plenty of good technical discussion and debate. We are also pleased to say that the papers from the symposium will appear in three thematic special journal editions; The International Journal of Fatigue, The Journal of Materials: Design and Applications and The Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design and we are delighted to be working with the editors of these journals to ensure a high standard of publications. Be sure to check the website for regular updates between now and the start of the symposium.
