DAVID DAVIDSON HONORARY DINNER
In conjunction with the David L. Davidson Symposium on Fatigue
Date: Monday, February 18, 2002, 6:00PM-9:30PM
Location: Sheraton Seattle Hotel & Towers
Room: Fullers Restaurant
Structural Materials Division, ASM International: Materials Science
Critical Technology Sector, Jt. Mechanical Behavior of Materials, and
High Temperature Alloys Committee.
High-cycle fatigue has become a major concern in the design and lifting
of engineering components and structures. This concern has led to increased
research activities in high-cycle fatigue, including basic understanding
of failure mechanisms, development of new experimental techniques, analysis
methods, and life-prediction methods. The proposed symposium is intended
to capture the current research activities and to assess the state-of-the-art
in the highcycle fatigue arena. A four-session symposium on high-cycle
fatigue was proposed. Some examples of what is included in the sessions
are (1) basic understanding of failure mechanisms, (2) experimental methods
and studies, (3) modeling and simulation, and (4) life-prediction methodology.
This symposium is organized in honor of Dr. David L Davidson who made
very significant contributions in fatigue, and retired from Southwest
Research Institute in February 1999, after thirty years of service.
Dinner tickets are $35 and may be purchased at the TMS Conference Registration
