Welcome to FESI

 

FESI - the UK Forum for Engineering Structural Integrity:
Working to assure the reliability, safety and economic viability of engineered systems, structures and components from design to end-of-life, and to reduce undesirable environmental impact.

 

FESI is the membership organisation for engineering structural integrity (ESI) in the UK. FESI disseminates the latest advances in ESI, promotes the exchange of ESI technologies and knowledge between industrial, regulatory, academic and professional organisations, encourages best practice in ESI, and provides a practical resource for anyone working in ESI. FESI aims to help improve the safe performance of and realise the economic potential inherent in the UK's engineering assets.

Short Cracks – do they matter?

FESI Continuing Professional Development Workshop

22nd May 2014

Nightingale Hall at "The Pavilion", Moor Lane, Derby

Sponsored by Rolls-Royce, Derby

To view the full programme and registration: download flyer shere

The well attended FESI workshop held in 2012 considered the changes made to the Nuclear Fatigue Design Curves for stainless steels in a PWR wetted environment. This related workshop introduces the current need for an improved understanding of short cracks versus a pragmatic view of engineering significance to consider whether they really matter. An overview of developments in short crack behaviour and understanding from related industries is provided.

In addition, the workshop will provide an opportunity to consider the strengths and weaknesses of the various underlying approaches and to explore where developments may be required. The workshop will also discuss how to enable and develop cross-communication on short cracks in the various industry sectors.

Increasingly, organisations are waking up to the fact that ESI's cross-industry, multi-disciplinary technologies, methodologies and practices underpin the success and safety of their current and future operations, although they may not, in the past, have regarded themselves as possessing an engineering component.

Sectors which recognise that ESI and the associated best practice makes a positive contribution to their survival range from the health, medical and healthcare industries, through architecture, construction, manufacturing, all branches of engineering and transport, to the renewable power generation, petrochemical, nuclear, and aerospace industries.

FESI's role as the UK's authority on ESI is supported and endorsed by a number of eminent and progressive organisations drawn from such sectors. These valued Sponsors acknowledge that the integration of ESI into their corporate policies has shown benefits for their development, operational safety, efficiency and sustainability. Sponsoring FESI is a way of helping to spread the positive message about ESI.

FESI is steered by a Council of distinguished ESI experts and specialists. See Who's Who in FESI.
