Engineering Integrity Society

a unique way for engineers in industry to exchange ideas and experience

The Challenges of Structural Integrity at High Temperature


Location: Phoenix Materials Testing Ltd, Brierley Hill, 4 October 2018

This seminar was aimed at engineers with hands on involvement in the world of high temperature applications, either for the design, or validation and testing, of materials, components and models. The seminar stimulated discussion and the sharing of information, techniques and challenges across a range of sectors.
