4th Workshop on Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue


Components in the Aerospace, Power and Automotive engineering sectors are frequently subjected to cyclic stresses induced by thermal fluctuations and mechanical loads. For the design of such components reliable material property data are required which need to be acquired using well accepted and reproducible testing procedures. The 4th TMF-Workshop will be held in conjunction with the final meeting of the research project DevTMF which deals with TMF crack growth and is funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 and Clean Sky 2. The intention of the present event is to continue the exchange of knowledge in the TMF regime. It provides a forum to present and discuss all recent developments in the field of thermo-mechanical fatigue.


  • TMF crack growth measurement
  • TMF life and crack growth models
  • TMF of steels, cast irons, aluminum-, titanium-, nickel base and other alloys
  • Cyclic stress strain behaviour at TMF
  • Comparison of TMF and LCF life
  • TMF and superimposed HCF
  • TMF and creep interactions
  • TMF and environmental interactions
  • Multiaxial TMF
  • TMF of coated materials
  • TMF and thermal fatigue of components
  • TMF damage mechanisms
  • Interpretation of TMF date
  • Force or strain controlled TMF testing
  • Service-cycle TMF testing
  • TMF test procedures and standardization
  • Applications
