5th Workshop on Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue


Components in the Aerospace, Power and Automotive engineering sectors are subjected to cyclic stresses induced by thermal fluctuations and mechanical loads. For the design of such components, reliable fatigue data are required which need to be acquired using well accepted and reproducible testing procedures.

The first TMF-Workshop was held at BAM in 2005 on the occasion of the publication of a European Code of Practice for TMF testing. A successful series of workshops emerged since then, bringing together up to 100 experts in the field in each meeting. The fifth TMF-Workshop will be held again at BAM, Berlin, Germany. The intention of this event is to continue the exchange of knowledge on thermo-mechanical fatigue. It provides a forum to present and discuss all recent developments in the field of thermo-mechanical fatigue.


  • TMF properties of steels, cast iron, Aluminium-, Titanium-, Nickel-base and other alloys
  • Cyclic deformation behaviour under TMF
  • TMF crack growth and related methods
  • Interactions of TMF with HCF, LCF and creep
  • TMF in controlled environments
  • Multiaxial TMF
  • TMF of coated materials
  • TMF and thermal fatigue of components
  • TMF damage mechanisms
  • Deformation and damage models for TMF
  • TMF testing procedures
  • Technology transfer and standardisation (including the revision of ISO 12111)
  • Industrial applications with combined loading scenarios, including creep-fatigue

Language: The workshop will be held in English.
