B0778 Methods for the Assessment of the Structural Integrity by David Lidbury, Peter B. Hirsch

By David Lidbury, Peter B. Hirsch

This quantity brings jointly the papers offered on the eighth Symposium organised by way of the Technical Advisory workforce on Structural Integrity of Nuclear Plant (TAGSI), hung on twenty fifth April 2001 on the TWI convention Centre at Granta Park, nice Abington close to Cambridge, united kingdom. the topic of this one-day symposium was once ''Methods for the evaluation of the Structural Integrity of parts and Structures''. It used to be attended via over 80 delegates from nuclear and non-nuclear industries, academia and executive agencies. the development, approach, strength new release, production and delivery industries all depend on the integrity of applicable buildings and parts to make sure the secure and financial operation in their plant. the article of the Symposium used to be to disseminate many of the methodologies utilized in varied industries for the overview of structural integrity, and to allow comparisons to be made up of the several techniques
