New Trends in Fatigue and Fracture NT2F14 Belgrade, Serbia
„Fatigue and fracture at all scales“
15-18 Septembre 2014
The fourteenth New Trends in Fatigue and Fracture international meeting will be held in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, from the 15th to 18th September, 2014.
This prestigious and long running conference will bring together delegates from around the world to discuss how to characterize, predict and analyze the fatigue and fracture of engineering materials.
NT2F14 will focus on all aspects of fracture and fatigue of wide range of materials (structural metals and alloys, advanced alloys and metallic systems, ceramics and glass, polymers, elastomers and composites, smart and functional materials, geo-materials and ice, cementitious materials for concrete, biomaterials), components and structures (welded components and weldments, pipelines, pressure vessels and other energy components, thin films, multi-layers, coatings and membranes, aerospace and aeronautics applications, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and nano-scale components, shipbuilding, automotive industry), with special emphasis on multi-scale approaches and applications to renewable energy materials and challenging environ–ments. This is a significant opportunity for you to join colleagues from around the world to exchange and discuss new ideas and findings and to present your work as a poster or oral presentation.
Structural Integrity and Life (ISSN 1451-3749) will be the supporting journal of the conference where all reviewed and accepted conference papers will be published. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication.
Authors are requested to electronically submit a one page abstract of the paper by August 20, 2014
Thank you so much for accepting our invitation to participate at the 14th International Conference New Trends in Fatigue and Fracture and for sending us your contributions. NT2F14 will focus on all scales and aspects of fatigue and fracture of engineering materials, components and structures with theoretical, experimental, numerical and practical approaches to the topics.
The conference will be organized in 10 oral sessions and one poster session, two opening and five plenary lectures given by world class scientists and one commercial presentation. The high quality selected papers will be published in Structural Integrity and Life journal (ISSN 1451-3749) right after the Conference.
