2002 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: David Davidson Honorary Dinner

February 17–21 · 2002 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · Seattle, Washington




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

Sponsored by:
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 desk.
