ANNOUNCING. ICRS-8 - The Eighth International Conference on Residual Stresses 6-8 August 2008 - Marriott Denver Tech Center Hotel - Denver, Colorado, U.S.A.

The 8th International Conference on Residual Stresses (ICRS-8)

Workshop: “Stress Analysis” Tuesday, 5 August  
Organizers:
I.C. Noyan, Columbia University, New York, NY, icn2@columbia.edu
M. Prime, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, prime@lanl.gov
This workshop will cover stress determination techniques using mechanical and diffraction methods as well as briefly reviewing basics of stress/strain and residual stress. It will be a basic tutorial aimed at engineers starting out to make such measurements, select measurement techniques, or just understand and interpret results. We will cover hole drilling, slitting, contour, layer removal and eigenstress analysis, as well as neutron and X-ray diffraction techniques.


Oral Sessions: Wednesday–Friday, 6–8 August

Dinner and Poster Session:
The traditional ICRS Conference Dinner will be held on Thursday night. Dinner costs are included in the ICRS registration fee. A limited number of dinner tickets may be available the first day of the conference. ICRS-8 will have one poster session in order to provide an opportunity for authors and attendees to interact. The poster session will start before the ICRS Conference Dinner Thursday night and posters will be available for viewing after the dinner as well.

Abstracts are hereby solicited for the following Special Sessions:
