Pr Pingsha Dong gives a course on the fatigue design of welded structures at Cetim!


On June the 13th and 14th in Senlis, Cetim welcomes Professor Pingsha Dong from the University of Michigan for a unique course series.

Save the date!

It is a very well-known expert that Cetim hosts on June 13th and 14th in Senlis for an exceptional training session on the fatigue of welded structures. Professor Pingsha Dong, director of the laboratory for welded structures at the University of Michigan, is indeed a regular winner of awards and honors from the scientific world. For two days, he delivered (in English) to participants from all over the planet the latest advances in his field.

Day 1 focusses on residual stress and fitness for service:
Residual stress/distortion development mechanisms, effective modelling procedures, principles of residual stress and distortion control, measurement techniques, fracture mechanics treatment for FFS assessment.

Day 2 is dedicated to fatigue design of welded structures:
Mesh-insensitive method, master S-N curve formulation and validation, structural strain method and master E-N curve, consistent treatment of low cycle fatigue and multiaxial non-proportional loading, applications in spot, laser, and FSW welds, and adhesive joints.
