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.
This is achieved through the organisation of CPD events, and the publication of a biannual journal, The FESI Bulletin, and textbooks through our wholly-owned subsidiary, EMAS publishing.
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.

Call for Papers - Time Extension
13 International Conference on Engineering Structural Integrity Assessment
19 and 20 May 2015
Download Call For Papers
Abstract submissions have been extended until 16 January. Please email them to email@example.com
This prestigious and long running conference will bring together delegates from around the world to discuss how to characterise, predict and analyse the Engineering Structural Integrity (ESI) of plant, components and structures together with buildings and the infrastructure. ESI is the science and practice of increasing engineering reliability and safety. We will be considering how economic challenges can be safely accommodated in both new design and in the operation of existing plant.

The event was a great success and we would like to thank all of the attendees, in particular the speakers.
A report will appear in an upcoming issue of The FESI Bulletin.
If anybody would like a digital copy of the workshop workbook on a 4 Gb USB pen drive, please contact us.
This is priced at £40 (€51) (+p&p).
To attendees of the workshop, we offer this free of charge.
