Following successful meetings in Lisbon, Toronto and Sitges, Elsevier will host the Fourth International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis at Churchill College in Cambridge in July 2010. You are invited to participate in the latest in this important series of conferences, which have established a respected biennial forum for the discussion and dissemination of knowledge and experience in Engineering Failure Analysis.
The topics for the 2010 conference will be:
The modern innovation cycle now demands that component design involves a whole-of-life approach, incorporating an awareness of manufacture, safety, reliability, environmental sensitivity and disposal. This has focussed attention on the pivotal role of failure analysis as an essential tool to improve equipment availability, help prevent accidents and disasters and to inform the processes of design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of key plant and equipment.
Papers and posters are invited which describe:
The strengths of past conferences have been the emphasis on practical application of technical knowledge to engineering failure analysis and the extensive use of case studies to the development of an understanding of engineering failures. The case study approach is strongly encouraged as an important mechanism for developing a body of knowledge well rooted in practical experience.
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations on the above themes should be submitted via the online submission form by November 27, 2009.
