Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Fracture Mechanics But Were Afraid to Ask
The integrity of structure must be of the upmost interest of each mechanical and
civil engineer. The importance of this engineering field is proven in everyday news where the
spectacular catastrophes are reported. To prevent from seeing collapsed structures and destroyed
machines the engineers must be able to predict failure. Thus, at least essential knowledge
concerning fracture mechanics and fatigue is necessary. In this Summer School we provide you
with the unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of fracture mechanics with help of the
world-class experts. The summer school is aimed in particular, at the PhD students, young
researchers and engineers, but naturally it is open to everybody. So do not hesitate to
attend our courses. Apart from the lectures there will be also a time to see beautiful,
old Polish city, Cracow and other historical sites.
Usualy the summer schools are organized together with the conferences on fracture. This time it will also happen. Summer School in Cracow will be tightly connected with Polish Conference on Fracture Mechanics organised by Polish Group of Fracture Mechanics (ESIS National Committee). The conference will be organised by Opole Univeristy of Technology in Hucisko from 16 to 19 September 2019. So if you want learn more about fracture and fatigue please visit the conference web page XVIIKKMP.
