SIF2006: International Conference on Structural Integrity and Failure
Sydney, Australia 27/09/2006 - 29/09/2006
The Institute of Materials Engineering Australia trading as Materials Australia and the Australian Fracture Group (AFG) invite you to attend an International Conference on Structural Integrity and Failure, SIF2006, to be held in Sydney from September 27 to 29, 2006.
SIF2006 continues the series of biennial conferences organised by the AFG, starting in 1974 and including SIF 2002 in Perth and the International Congress on Fracture ICF9 in Sydney in 1997. This year it is combined with the International Conference on Failure Analysis and Maintenance Technologies (ICFAMT) which has run in 2002 and 2004 and was created by Materials Australia to respond to a growing industry demand to consider failure analysis and the technologies used to avoid failures.
Papers from the conference will be considered for republication in two international journals:
- Engineering Failure Analysis (Elsevier, UK).
- Fatigue & Fracture of Engineering Materials
- Structures (Blackwell UK).
A Technological Conference
The conference will emphasise the technologies, science and engineering of structural integrity and failure analysis.
An Industry/Supplier Network
The conference links:
- Material and science professionals
- Engineering and Design
- Asset management
- Non-destructive and repair specialists
- Operating and Maintenance staff
SIF 2006 is designed to attract engineers and operators of a wide range of assets and equipment and put them in touch with a wide range of researchers, service providers and consultants. SIF 2006 is an important forum in which to see the latest work and provides an ideal network opportunity. We also encourage research student participation.
The technical committee is currently inviting keynote speakers from Australia and overseas.
A special session will be arranged covering new investigation and NDT equipment
There will be an exhibition held in conjunction with the conference. Enquires can be addressed to Materials Australia.
