1 MATERIALS UNDER STRESS : AN INTRODUCTION TO FRACTURE MECHANICS AND FATIGUE 5 - 9 MARCH 2007 THE COURSE This is an intensive course covering the basic concepts of fracture mechanics and fatigue, with emphasis on practical applications for metals, ceramics, polymers and composites . The course is suitable for those with no previous formal introduction to the science of fracture and no prior knowledge or experience is assumed. All topics will be introduced from first principles and the emphasis will be on developing an understanding of concepts of fracture mechanics rather than presenting a "state-of-the-art" review. Lectures will be given by experts in the field with experience of teaching this material to practising engineers and materials scientists on post-experience courses. Supervised examples classes will enable delegates to work on the solution of typical problems and discuss these with the lecturers. WHO SHOULD ATTEND? The course would be invaluable for scientists and technologists seeking an introduction to fracture mechanics. It will be suitable for recent graduates in science or engineering and others who are entering the field of fracture and fatigue. PREREQUISITES No prior knowledge or experience of fracture mechanics is assumed but the course will be taught at graduate level. It should be understood readily by graduates in science or engineering. The mathematical demands of the course are not great but some understanding of the calculus would be advantageous. Candidates seeking to enrol on the Modular MSc should be of graduate status.

2 COURSE FORMAT The course will commence at 0945 on Monday 5 March 2007 and continue until 1400 on Friday 9 March. The course will comprise lectures, laboratory sessions and exercise classes. There will be ample opportunity for discussion and informal contact with the lecturers. Lecture notes will be distributed at registration and will include much of the detailed visual materials presented by each lecturer. This will relieve the student from some note-taking and will permit greater concentration on the topic. However, these hand-outs are merely notes, and are intended to supplement lecture materials. Copies will only be made available to registered attendees. ACCOMMODATION We regret no University accommodation is available for this course. On registration delegates will be sent a list of local accommodation. A range of hotels is available and there are also guest houses and the local YMCA offering good accommodation at reasonable rates. ENROLMENT
