Webinar: Can you predict brittle crack arrest behaviour of modern structural steels from Charpy testing?

6 Aug 2020 1:35 PM | Anonymous

This webinar will look into the brittle crack arrest methodology and the way that it can be applied to prevent brittle fracture of modern structural steels, especially within the context of shipbuilding steels. The talk will consider the recommendations of the International Association of Classification Societies, which is due to be updated to include small-scale testing of materials. This work encompasses small-scale testing, which has been carried out at TWI Ltd to predict the brittle crack arrest properties of EH47 shipbuilding steel and is validated against large-scale test results.

Speaker: Jessica Taylor Interim CEng AWeldI

TWI’s Jessica Taylor is a PhD student in Structural Integrity of Offshore Structures with NSIRC and Cranfield University, sponsored by Lloyd’s Register Foundation. Her PhD topic is, ‘Using small scale mechanical tests to predict the crack arrest properties of modern structural steels.’ You can find out more about Jessica’s PhD project and research on NSIRC’s website.
