    Research output: Book/ReportBook (editor)Scientificpeer-review


    This symposium summarises the achievements within a joint R&D project "GJUTDESIGN-2005 - Design kvalitet och NDT för gjutna utmattningsbelastade komponenter". It brought together 25 Nordic organisations aiming to co-ordinated development of improved methods and tools for fatigue design of cast structures and components. The partners include 10 industrial companies that design and manufacture construction machinery, trucks, robots, windmills, paper machines and ship engines, 5 foundries, engineering consulting firm, research organisations and universities. Selected 20 papers deal with mechanisms, understanding, practical assessment and specific industrial challenges in fields of optimisation of casting process, material properties and component design, influence of defects and crack growth mechanisms on fatigue resistance, inspection and quality assurance to control of defects, and complex service loading in terms of variable amplitude and multiaxiality.
