MatStress Engineering has uploaded a document about Safety of Ageing Structures and Materials in PDF format on the MatStress Engineering website.
The safety paradigm of engineering structures and materials is changing. With recent advances in digital technologies, the utility of conventional design techniques like margin of safety and factor of safety based calculations are now under scrutiny as as never before. The conventional mechanistic based understanding of the deformation mechanisms (continuum mechanics) served the engineering designs with tremendous success. But now time is changing.
