ESIAM21- The second European Conference on the Structural Integrity of Additively Manufactured Materials- Moving online
Thank you to all your contributions to ESIAM21. We received over 120 excellent contributions. The quality of the submissions, the innovative research topics, the breath and the depth is impressive, which will make ESIAM21 a great and memorable experience.
The pandemic continues to make it uncertain whether international participants can travel to Austria. To keep the international character of ESIAM that we all enjoyed in 2019, we have decided to organize ESIAM21 as an online event. We hope you understand our decision. You can register as participant here.
We will feature pre-recorded presentations that will be made available on an IGF youtube channel before the event. Prepare and upload your video presentation following the instructions on esiam.eu/presentation. The deadline is August 15th 2021. During the event, the presenters will briefly summarize their work during the event followed by a extended discussion session. There will be two to three concurrent parallel sessions on the 3 days of the conference.
Structural integrity, i.e. the fracture and fatigue strength of additively manufactured materials and components is becoming increasingly important with the technology’s transition towards major industrial utilization. The conference will provide an overview over current scientific knowledge and stimulate ideas for future research directions in this emerging field. Peer-reviewed contributions will be in the form of a 15-minute presentation or a poster. The agenda will allow for extended discussions and for exploring Vienna at the end of the tourist season in one of the most pleasant times of the year. ESIAM21 will be the second event of the biannual international conference series held in Europe and worldwide.
Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques offer the potential to economically fabricate customized parts with complex geometries in a rapid design-to-manufacture cycle. Before benefits can be explored in critical load bearing applications, the basic understanding of the mechanical and functional behavior of these materials must be substantially improved at all scales. In particular, a better understanding of fracture and fatigue performance is key. The conference will shed light on the basic physical phenomena of fatigue and fracture of AM materials and develop effective criteria for the design of unprecedented high performing components for next generation automotive, aerospace and biomedical applications.
The review process has been concluded. Congratulations to all who have been selected for giving an oral presentation or are presenting a poster. You may now upload your full paper now following these instructions. All contributions will undergo peer-review and will be considered for a special issue of Procedia Structural Integrity. The special issue will be published within the year 2021.
