Expertise in fatigue analytical and numerical modelling as well as testing capabilities and microstructural characterisation. In particular,

  • Fatigue crack growth prediction in wheels
  • Crack growth under high stress gradients
  • Welds behaviour
  • FEM modelling, including in-house developed user subroutines to model fatigue damage
  • Macrotextures and residual stresses from X-ray diffraction (goniometer)
