Mark your calendars for the 6th Residual Stress Summit, to be held on Monday-Thursday October 23-26, 2017 at the University of Dayton Research Institute, in Dayton, Ohio, USA. The Welcome Reception is on Monday evening, October 23, followed by the technical sessions Tuesday-Thursday October 24-26. The Summit will showcase invited talks from acknowledged experts, topical updates, poster sessions and equipment demonstrations. The Residual Stress Summits are organized on a non-profit basis so as to be affordable and accessible meetings, see registration page.
The central objective of the Residual Stress Summit series is to bring together residual stress users, (who have "problems" and are in search of "solutions") and developers (who have "solutions" and are in search of "problems"). The Summit is designed to have a tightly focused format by choosing in advance a coherent sequence of topics directed at practical needs and applications. Experts in these fields are then invited to speak and to share their knowledge and experience. All talks are by invitation only.
Also included in the meeting are demonstration sessions where residual stress related equipment and materials are displayed. In addition, RS Summit participants are invited to give voluntary poster presentations and/or equipment demonstrations. The informal conference proceedings will include a list of attendees, demonstrators and affiliations, as well as the presentations from the speakers and poster presenters.
An optional Short Course on the Hole-Drilling Method for measuring residual stresses will be given immediately before Summit, on Monday morning, October 23, 2017.
The Summit Banquet will be held at the The Engineers' Club of Dayton, at which the Iain Finnie Memorial Award will be presented. Dr. Tom Crouch, Senior Curator, National Air and Space Museum, Washington DC, will give an after-dinner talk on early aviation history.
The organizers warmly thank the University of Dayton Research Institute for assisting with meeting coordination and organization of the venue.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 6th Residual Stress Summit, 2017 !
