An international conference to examine case histories of damage and failure events in the power, nuclear, transport and other industries will take place in September.

Called "Case histories on integrity and failures in industry", the conference will be held in Milan, Italy, on 27 September to 1 October 1999.

The topics under discussion at the conference will fall into three main categories. The first of these relates to histories of integrity and failure analysis and will draw on service experience, cases of maintenance, welds and joint behaviour, and repairing, remedies, solutions and refurbishments. The second topic area will be techniques of analysis (experimental), with particular attention being paid to microstructure, mechanical tests, component tests, monitoring NDT, predictive maintenance and residual life, and life extension. The legal aspects of failures will also be discussed at the conference, particularly with regards to integrity codes and authorities, laws and insurance aspects and case histories.

The conference is being organised by the Italian Group on Fracture (IGF) ENEL Research, with support from the European Commission under the BRITE-EURAM programme.

The conference organisers are inviting the submission of papers on the topics mentioned above.
