European fitness for service network

Objective

FITNET will promote the development of a European Fitness-for Purpose procedure for assessing the structural integrity of metallic structures transmitting loads. In particular it will cover techniques for dealing with know or postulated defects and will consider the failure mods of fatigue, fracture, creep and environmental assisted cracking. The network will harness recent technological advances from EC-funded projects, national programmes and in-kind contributions. Working groups will be established to review existing standards, to create a database of validation tests and to produce consensus recommendations for a European structural integrity assessment procedure. It involves 30 organisations all with recognised expertise in this area, drawn from 13 European countries.
