Are you interested in learning more about fatigue testing? 

This overview seminar will cover the differences in various types of fatigue testing.  The fundamental concepts and mathematics between bending fatigue, axial stress-life high cycle fatigue, axial strain-life low cycle fatigue and fatigue crack propagation will be covered.  Other related topics including cyclic hardening and softening, fracture toughness, fracture surface interpretation and fatigue testing strategies such S-N curve development and staircase testing will also be explained. Do you have fatigue testing questions?  Send them to the presenter for discussion at the seminar: Email Engaged Expert John Tartaglia
