Call for Papers: PVP 2017 - MF2 Application of Fracture Mechanics in Failure Assessment

2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference

Hilton Waikoloa Village, Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA

July 16 – 20, 2017

The ASME Materials and Fabrication Committee (M&F) is inviting papers in the technical sessions on Application of Fracture Mechanics in Failure Assessment (Topic MF-2). The papers will appear in the PVP 2017 conference proceedings and may be considered for publication in the ASME Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology (JPVT) or any other ASME archival journals.


I am fine

I didn't delete my posts. I learned from admin that they are archieved in a way that they cannot be displayed right now. But don't worry, things are beginning to roll. I got a long email from John today but haven't got time to read it carefully yet.


what a shame

The Introduction of Shear Modification to Gurson Model

I have been asked questions about how the shear modification was introduced to the Gurson model. I was also asked to compare my modification (see Xue L., Constitutive modeling of void shearing effect in ductile fracture of porous materials, Engineering Fracture Mechanics, 2008, 75(11):3343-3366) to John Hutchinson's modification (Nahshon, K., Hutchinson, J.W., Modification of the Gurson model for shear failure. European Journal of Mechanics A/Solids, 2008, 27:1-17).

Professor Frank A. McClintock passed away at the age of 90


Frank A. McClintock, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, passed away on Feb. 20, in the Briarwood Health Care facility in Needham, Mass. at the age of 90.

After getting his Ph.D. from Caltech in 1950, Frank (MIT ’43, SM ’43) was named assistant professor at MIT and served at the Department of Mechanical Engineering until he retired in 1990 and became professor emeritus. 

Call for Abstracts - Symposium on Advanced Computational Methods for Fracture (IMECE 2009)

This is topic 12-21 Advanced Computational Methods for Fracture in the upcoming ASME Congress 2009 (November 13-19, Lake Buena Vista, FL., USA.) Deadline for abstract submissio: March 2, 2009.

The aim of the topic is to recognize the recent development in the computational tools for fracture characterization. The topic is open to all contributions on numerical techniques, simulations of fracture problems at all length scales, failure mechanism modeling, fracture prediction, and computational algorithms to achieve these goals.
