1st Workshop on Thermodynamics of Fatigue Process


June 14, 2023, 14:00 CET



This workshop is organized for the first time, because we assume that the key topic is somewhat set aside during regular fatigue conferences and the general interest in it is quite low. This can be stated despite its vast potential – both in finally applying some physics into the description of fatigue process and in a possible decrease of the costs related to obtaining the fatigue characteristics necessary for successful fatigue estimation.

This kick-off meeting is organized to see whether there is a will among researchers dealing with the topic to meet and to discuss their experience within this narrow domain. The first volume is organized as one-day online event. Next volumes and the potential transition into a conference series will be discussed during the meeting. To simplify the start, no publication is derived from the presentations given at the meeting. The meeting should basically serve as an introduction of each team and of the focused direction in which the team accesses the targeted domain.

Attendance Fee

No attendance fee is requested.

Used Language

English language is the official language of the lectures.

Conference Location & Timing

The meeting is held online. It will be recorded and its content will be made available to the meeting participants within few days after the meeting ends. To ensure that participans from other time zones than European countries could join with their entries, the prerecorded lectures can be sent to me, and I will let them run.


You can register to the meeting by an e-mail to Please write there the optimum time slot necessary for your presentation including its estimated duration. It is envisaged that the common presentation should take 15-30 minutes.
