Complex Loading versus Hidden Reserves

10.02.2017

Symposium on Structural Durability Provides New Trends

The durability of materials, components or constructions is sometimes reduced greatly due to complex load conditions. These effects must be taken into consideration, particularly for safety components. Furthermore, products have to be produced in an easy, cost-effective, efficient manner – diametrically opposed challenges. At the International Symposium on Structural Durability in Darmstadt, Germany, on May 17-18, 2017, experts will discuss complex load situations and how they can be assessed realistically.

Structural durability includes the design, measurement and stability of components and systems in relation to loads. These requirements are extremely complex; material utilization is increasing, while a focus is being placed on lightweight construction. Today’s configurations have fewer and fewer “hidden reserves.” The design strategy, determination of the design-relevant loads, and assessment of a component’s strength are becoming more and more complicated.

At the fifth Symposium on Structural Durability in Darmstadt (SoSDiD) on May 17-18, 2017, at the Maritim Conference Hotel, international experts on structural durability will present the latest findings in structural durability. Experts from the industrial and financial sectors will report on the topic of “Complex Loading.” During three feature presentations, “Environmentally Assisted Fatigue,” “Variable Amplitude Loading” and “Random Vibration,” the influence of media, temperature changes, and variable load amplitudes on the structural durability of components will also be discussed with participants.

The accompanying exhibition will showcase highly specialized tools and provide information on current measurement and testing options, as well as new software for the complex topic of structural durability.

Advancing methods and design concepts

The conference is a lively forum for discussing basic questions and current trends regarding component reliability and safety. At the same time, it offers the opportunity to network in Darmstadt, a research location steeped in tradition. For over a decade, Darmstadt has been a center for research in structural durability. Test and measurement equipment, calculation methods and design philosophies have been developed here. Traditionally, research institutes have held the Symposium on Structural Durability in Darmstadt in cooperation with leading local manufacturers of servo-hydraulic test systems and components as well as an internationally recognized market leader of measurement technology, taking a closer look at the continuity of the activities in this area with the common goal of advancing methods and design concepts for future materials and products.

On the lookout for young talent

For the first time ever, the 2017 event will feature a “Young Talents Session.” Experts are aiming to find the next generation of talent early on, calling for keen young engineers to make brief presentations on their topic.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
