Following from the previous popular seminar, Residual Stress 2017 will provide a key opportunity for engineers to hear the latest techniques to analyse, predict, model and measure residual stress.

This one day seminar will discuss the latest techniques to effectively analyse and measure residual stress in a variety of situations and materials.

Learn from engineers and academics including TWI Ltd., Rolls-Royce, University of Manchester, Gestamp, National Physics Laboratory and other thought leaders in industry. Learn about the latest techniques and solutions from real-life case study presentations for more accurate measurement and modelling.

Take this opportunity to share cross-industry best practice during interactive panel discussions and networking sessions. Enable your organisation to better identify and control residual stress and to mitigate against catastrophic material failures.


What our speakers are looking forward to this year:

“There are several topics, including: “Micro-residual Stress Measurement” and “Residual Stress and Crack Propagation””
Wei Li, Materials Technologist at Rolls Royce
“I am looking forward to hearing the session “Residual Stresses in High Value Manufacturing””
Catrin Mair Davies, Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London
” The IMechE residual stress seminar is based on the industry trends and provide insight into cutting-edge solutions and developments in technical / engineering / manufacturing areas. Events like this specialise in finding compelling subject matter and usually relevant speakers to present their latest issues as well as hints on their latest projects and advancements…I would like to see more realistic approaches to predict and manage the level and distribution of residual stress and their significance for high value manufacturing sector.”
