Seminar: Experimental Stress Analysis for Component Assessment
Two Day Seminar Various Locations Level: Expert
This seminar provides the theoretical and practical knowledge required for a confident experimental verification of FEM models. This Master Course (Course 3) in compliance with VDI/VDE/GESA 2636 ideally complements Course 1 (The Basics of Strain Gauge Installation and Strain Gauge Measurement Technology) and Course 2 (Measuring with strain gauges—planning, connecting and analyzing) in this series.
- The basics of experimental stress analysis and experimental design
- Calculating principal-strain and principal-stress values
- Material behavior, Hooke's Law, stress-strain ratio
- Systematics of stress states
- Multi-axial stress state and strength
- Equivalent stresses and damage hypotheses
- How to handle residual stress?
- Anisotropic materials
- Strength evaluation with time-dependent loading (S-N curve, short-term, static, and endurance strength)
- Classifying strain data
- Determining total damage
- Durability/fatigue life prediction
Comprehensive training ranging from strain measurement through stress determination to component assessment.
Target group: Engineers who evaluate strain measurements.
Prior knowledge: Course 3 is a follow-up to Course 2 (Measuring with strain gauges - planning, connecting and analyzing), and therefore, completion of Course 2 is a general prerequisite. Course 1 provides the basics of strain-gauge installation and strain-gauge measurement technology. Knowledge of technical mechanics, acquired in university or through qualified further education programs, is a further prerequisite.
