OBJECTIVES

The quest for improved materials has recently become easier, this larger due to progress in two distinct areas: nondestructive testing (NDT) and computer simulations (CSs). Today, due to the great improvements in computer technology, experimental and computational methods, it is possible to solve a variety of complex problems accurately and efficiently. The Workshop will discuss papers on any of the topics listed or others related to the theme of the Meeting, with particular emphasis on the application of advanced theories, experimental techniques and computational methods.

TUTORIALS

The workshop program will be supplemented by tutorials on neighbouring fields. To this end, the following subjects and invited speakers have been committed:

Session   Speaker...............................................
  • 70 years of X-ray tensometry:
    history and fundamentals
  by Prof.Dimitri Vasiliev
St.Petersburg State Technical University
  • 70 years of X-ray tensometry:
    applications
  by Prof.Ivo Kraus
