Theme Meeting on Fatigue Deformation and Damage

The theme meeting on 'Fatigue Deformation and Damage'  was conducted by IIM Kalpakkam Chapter, at IGCAR, Kalpakkam on 29 October 2018.

Dr. R. Sandhya initiated the meeting with a comprehensive talk on cyclic deformation behaviour of reactor structural materials.


This was followed by Dr. A. Nagesha's presentation of research carried out on thermo-mechanical fatigue behaviour with focus on reactor structural materials. Dr. GV Prasad Reddy highlighted the importance of creep-fatigue interaction on high temperature materials. A perspective on analysing fatigue crack growth behaviour of austenitic stainless steels through a unified approach was shared by Shri Nani Babu.

The meeting concluded with Smt. A. Poonguzhali's illuminating talk on the corrosion-fatigue behaviour of nitrogen-alloyed austenitic stainless steel in chloride media.
