Improving the Fracture-Based Performance Equation for OCTG Tubular Alloy Steels in Sour Environments
A practical summary of the fundamentals of fracture mechanics and tools for solving problems related to critical crack size, brittle fracture, crack growth, and fracture mechanics-based fatigue life estimation for both engineers and non-engineers who need a better understanding of the relationship between fracture toughness, stress and predicted failure.
The morning sessions will focus on theory and the afternoon sessions will present applications.
