Engineering with uncertain load regimes and strange materials – the story of aerospace and nuclear safety critical components
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Hilde Fernandez.
The reality of designing and certifying safety critical product is both fascinating and complex. Often, life-limiting regimes are unexpected and require deep mechanistic understanding to fully mitigate them. These issues will be reviewed in the context of current research aimed at improving our understanding and predictive capability. This will include the evolution of strain heterogeneity in materials and modelling / experimental techniques for high strain rate loading. In addition, there will be some obligatory footage of jet engines blowing up. In addition, an overview of the challenges, rewards and potential frustrations of working in industry and managing academic interfaces will be provided.
