Growing market is demanding more engineered products in a shorter design cycle, with longer life, durable, reduced cost and with better performance and competitive. Which encourages designers, researchers to explore more and more realistic solutions, techniques and procedures to ensure the consumer demand is achieved. Material in Design plays a major role in the design cycle innovation, leading to find better, smarter, cheaper material along with new product design techniques, innovative manufacturing technologies and in-service treatments. Innovations are inevitable to achieve best solutions however, it makes engineering product designers challenge still more complex in understanding, exploring and acquiring the knowledge of physics behind phenomenon associated with fatigue, fracture, material, process, product design, validation techniques & verification procedures to meet the real world challenge. It is the need of the hour to acquire, adopt and excel in this knowledge.
This course introduces concept of fatigue, fatigue mechanisms, loading aspects, material aspects of fatigue and considerations in testing and simulation. The course aims to cover the detailed knowledge on theoretical and simulation aspects of stress based and strain based fatigue life calculations; also extends to calculate the effect of manufacturing parameters like residual stress, surface finish on fatigue life.
Course aims to give introduction to thermo-mechanical and creep fatigue, vibrational fatigue, weld fatigue aspects.
On the loading front it will cover bi-axial and multi-axial fatigues, temperature dependent, time dependent loading aspects are covered.
