Advancing methods and design concepts
The conference is a lively forum for discussing basic questions and current trends regarding component reliability and safety. At the same time, it offers the opportunity to network in Darmstadt, a research location steeped in tradition. For over a decade, Darmstadt has been a center for research in structural durability. Test and measurement equipment, calculation methods and design philosophies have been developed here. Traditionally, research institutes have held the Symposium on Structural Durability in Darmstadt in cooperation with leading local manufacturers of servo-hydraulic test systems and components as well as an internationally recognized market leader of measurement technology, taking a closer look at the continuity of the activities in this area with the common goal of advancing methods and design concepts for future materials and products.
On the lookout for young talent
For the first time ever, the 2017 event will feature a “Young Talents Session.” Experts are aiming to find the next generation of talent early on, calling for keen young engineers to make brief presentations on their topic.
