Fracture Mechanics Summer School, June 9-11, 2019

Following the editions in Trieste and Udine, an IGF summer school will be organized in Catania, with four leading scientists presenting different issues in the field of fracture mechanics and fatigue The summer school is mainly aimed at PhD students, young researchers and engineers, but is naturally open to everybody. Participants will become acquainted with fundamental aspects, modelling and practical applications of fracture mechanics and fatigue.
