Ninth International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis (ICEFA IX)

Abstract submission deadline: 13 December 2019

The ICEFA is a long-running conference series which brings together world-class researchers, users and specialists involved in all aspects of failure analysis and prevention from the fields of mechanical, manufacturing, aeronautical, civil, chemical, corrosion and design engineering.

For the ninth event we are very excited to be working for the first time with the Chinese Failure Analysis Institution and with Co-Chair, Professor Zheng-Guo Yang, who has kindly offered to host the conference at Fudan University in Shanghai.

Conference Chairs

Richard Clegg, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
Zhen-Guo Yang, Fudan University, Shanghai, China

We are pleased to invite oral and poster abstracts on the following topics:

  • Engineering failure modes for metallic and non-metallic engineering materials
  • Approaches to failure analysis
  • Role of service loading in failure analysis
  • Case studies of failures in industry sectors such as aerospace, marine and offshore, automotive, rail, power generation, mining and minerals, consumer goods, medical devices and others
  • Historical disasters
  • Structural and architectural failures
  • Failure analysis and joining technologies
  • Role of condition monitoring and NDT in failure avoidance
  • Failure analysis, maintenance and reliability
  • Role of failure analysis in the design process
