This book presents the proceedings of one of the major conferences in fatigue, fracture and structural integrity (NT2F). The papers are organized and divided in five different themes: fatigue and fracture mechanics of structures and advanced materials; fatigue and fracture in pressure vessels and pipelines: mechanical behavior and structural integrity of welded, bonded and bolted joints; residual stress and environmental effects on the fatigue behavior; and simulation methods, analytical and computation models in fatigue and fracture.
Gabriel Plascencia has a Ph. D. degree from the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada. The same year, he joined the faculty of graduate studies at the Center for Research and Technical Innovation of the National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico City.
David Jaramillo Vigueras is a metallurgical engineer from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) in Mexico. He has been a professor at the IPN since 1976 at the undergraduate and graduate levels, being also appointed Dean of Research, and Dean of Undergraduate studies at IPN. He has vast experience on industrial consulting in mechanical metallurgy, mechanical integrity and heat treatment of alloys.
