MOTIVATION AND TOPICS

The International Journal of Structural Integrity - IJSI was launched in 2010 and is published in partnership with the European Aeronautics Science Network - EASN. The ISJI aims at a broad coverage of structural integrity issues, including material characterizations from the fracture and fatigue points to view, numerical modelling of those phenomena in materials and real structures, failure analysis methodologies and structural integrity evaluation criteria. The journal provides a forum for the key players in this broad area of science and technology, as universities, research institutes, manufacturing industry, legislative bodies and government agencies, SMEs, consultancy and maintenance companies.

 

Occasionally scientific meetings are sponsored or even organized by the journal, as this 1st International Conference which will take place in Porto, Portugal. The conference aims at being a forum for discussion of current trends of research in structural integrity, in aeronautics and space, but also in other sectors of engineering where structural integrity is a key concern.

 

The conference topics are aligned with the IJSI coverage, and include but are not limited to:

  • Advances in Fracture Analysis

  • Coating Technology and Structural Performance

  • Design and Structural Assessment of Metallic and Composite Structures

  • Durability of Electronic Materials

  • Durability of Metallic and Composite Structures

  • Environmental Effects and Structural Performance

  • Evaluation of Joining Technologies

  • Examination of Computational Codes for Stress Analysis and Damage Tolerance

  • Nanomechanics and nanomaterials

  • Non-destructive testing

  • Probabilistic Approach to Damage Tolerance

  • Repair Technologies

  • Scale Effects

  • Structural Ageing

  • Structural Health Monitoring

  • Structural Integrity

  • Structural Performance Evaluation of Metals, Composites, Hybrids and

  • Polymers

  • Surface Engineering and Structural Performance

INVITED KEY NOTE SPEAKERS

There will be plenary lectures delivered by distinguished researchers (to be announced).
