Ageing and mechanical analysis
The objective of the Training Module is to provide a transfer of knowledge in the fields of ageing and mechanical analysis. The course is focused on design requirements for components and computational aspects concerning integrity assessment.
Further relevant ageing mechanisms and their management and the key issues of long term operation (LTO) including the status in different countries will be presented.
The expected outcome is to improve the competences and the level of understanding of the participants in relation to the following topics: design requirements for components including material aspects; fracture mechanical, seismic and fatigue analysis concerning integrity assessment of components; mechanical analysis methods and exemplary applications; basics of ageing mechanisms; regulatory requirements on ageing management; key issues of LTO and status of LTO in Western and Eastern countries.
