Catastrophic failures of engineering structures and components are becoming increasingly frequent in our complex technological society. Phenomena such as metal fatigue, corrosion and hydrogen-assisted cracking compromise the integrity of our infrastructure, as in the recent collapse of bridge Morandi in Genoa. I will show how our scientific understanding of material behaviour enables predicting and preventing failures using computer models.
