CAE Based Fatigue, Durability and Damage Tolerance With a Particular Emphasis on Dynamic Systems and Vibration Environments A State of the Art Perspective by Dr. Neil Bishop
(Author of the NAFEMS Book, Finite Element Based Fatigue Calculations)
Course Number: PAT319 Course Presenter: Dr. Neil Bishop (author of the NAFEMS Book, Finite Element Based Fatigue Calculations) Summary: This course involved the mixture of 3 distinct topics:
$1425 (U.S. only) £1125 (UK) €1275 (Europe)
Prerequisites: An interest in the subject
The course will present a unique perspective on this by highlighting the importance of the integration of the subjects, which can then be used to show this is a situation where the combined capability really is more than the sum of the parts. In order to do this, a state-of-the-art view of CAE based fatigue, durability and damage tolerance calculations will be presented with a particular emphasis on dynamic systems and
vibration environments (such as that defined in military standard MILSTD-810). Although MSC products will be used to show example problems, the course material will be independent of any software products and generally focused on the technology rather than specific software products. Furthermore, although much of the material presented will be at an advanced level, there will be no prerequisite other than an interest in the subject.

Instructor Background: Neil wrote the book, Finite Element Based Fatique Calculations for NAFEMS more than 11 years ago and since then he has been actively involved with a variety of applications of the technology. Neil Bishop has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and has published over 30 academic papers and books related to fatigue and durability, dynamics and renewable energy. These included the only book written exclusively on FE Based Fatigue. Neil worked for 10 years as an academic within the UK university system and successfully

supervised 6 international PhD students. He pioneered the use of innovative laboratory based methods for teaching mathematics and dynamics. Neil also managed several research programs for the UK and other European governments. In fact, he was called to act as an expert witness and technical expert for both the UK and Dutch governments on several occasions. Neil has also recently worked on a SBIR project for the US Air force on acoustic fatigue.
