Introduction to Fatigue of Materials

Short initiation to fatigue of materials

Detailed description:

In this webinar, following an Introduction and some definition, you will see:
• cracking mechanism
• Analysis process in fatigue
• Different kinds of rupture/fracture







Pedagogical Means:

Teaching method alternating theory and practice through case studies or works directed.

Who should attend:

Technicians in the methods, control, quality and manufacturing departments, but also all those (project managers, sales engineers, buyers and who want to know about cleaning and cleanliness of parts.

Topics covered during the presentation:

Features presented from case studies:

  • Some photos of real crack
  • Example of rupture surface


The webinar will be presented by our French expert Mr Thierry Gautreau. (Industry 4.0 and companies’ transformation) supported by Mr. Cyril TRUNET.


With 20 years of manufacturing advanced material in both production and innovation, Thierry’s skills are ideally suited to the integration of innovation technology into park machine, company organisation and business itself.

  • Mechanical engineer, specialized in Durability Engineering.
  • Technical Study: technological choices, techno-economical analyses, design and industrialization of components, industrial transfer
  • Training and Supports
  • 20 years of practical experience, in mechanical engineering on automotive, aeronautical, railway parts, …
  • Skills in materials, durability testing and calculation, correlation, instrumentation, FEA
