Fatigue & Fracture Analysis of Ship Structures

Posted by Joseph R. Fonseca
Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Learn how design, maintenance and operational issues affect fatigue and fracture of steel and aluminum ship structures. The course includes practical design and analysis theory applications using direct calculations and sample FlawCheck software. 

 
This three-day course to be conducted from September 3 - 5, at ABS Auditorium, Houstan, Texas is geared to the needs of naval architects, ship superintendents and engineers responsible for design, material specification, welding, operational safety and maintenance.
 
The course begins with a review of the fatigue and fracture problems observed in marine structures and how they have been addressed. This is followed by an introduction to material characterization for in-service defect and condition assessment with explanation of the quantitative procedures for assessing fatigue and fracture performance. The concepts discussed can be used at the design stage as well as in service to select materials and size structural supports, to make maintenance and inspection decisions and to assess the life extension potential.
 
This course has been accredited by SNAME and is in compliance with NYSED guidelines for Continuing
Professional Competency.
