Abstract submission deadline: 1 April 2016


The eleventh biennial International Conference on Fatigue Damage of Structural Materials will be held in scenic Cape Cod at The Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis, Massachusetts from the 18-24 September 2016.


This prestigious and long running conference will bring together delegates from around the world to discuss how to characterize, predict, and analyze the fatigue damage of structural materials.


Conference Topics

Oral and poster abstracts are now invited on the following topics. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.


  • Environmental Cracking
  • High Temperature Crack Growth
  • Contact Fatigue
  • Advanced Crack Monitoring Techniques (tomography, etc.)
  • Microstructure Scale Computational Modeling
  • Loading Protocol Effects (variable amplitude loading, thermo-mechanical loading, etc.)
  • Macro-scale Fatigue Prognosis Techniques
  • Effects of Materials Modification (weld, shot peening, etc.)
