ICEFA X at Greece - 7 to 10 July 2024


Engineering failure analysis is a key interdisciplinary diagnostic and prevention tool that involves a whole-cycle approach, incorporating an awareness of design considerations, manufacturing processes, safety, reliability, integrity, maintenance, environmental damage, sustainability, service loading conditions, and end-of-life disposal and decommissioning.

The tenth ICEFA conference focuses on the practical application of technical knowledge to engineering failure analysis and the extensive use of case studies and real-life examples, in conjunction with theoretical/numerical/experimental analysis of failure mechanisms, to develop an understanding of engineering failures for different industrial applications.  Engineering failure analysis aims to improve design approaches, increase operational life, prevent accidents and disasters, enhance manufacturing processes, and incorporate appropriate inspection and maintenance strategies in asset integrity management.

In 2024, the supporting publication, Engineering Failure Analysis (opens in new tab/window)  (opens in new tab/window)completes its 30th year (1994-2024) of publishing high-quality research that represents an essential reference for analysing and preventing engineering failure. Come to Athens to celebrate the 30th year anniversary!

Attendance at this conference will enable you to:

Network with the leading researchers in engineering failure analysis and initiate new research collaborations.

Attend talks from internationally renowned researchers.

Share your research findings with the experts in engineering failure analysis community.

Conference Topics

Poster abstracts are invited on the following topics and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system (opens in new tab/window)

Analysis of engineering failure associated with environmental damage, such as hydrogen embrittlement; additively manufactured parts; high-temperature components; bioengineering materials; energy structures and infrastructure.

Microscopic investigation of failure mechanisms in engineering materials (metals and alloys, polymers, ceramics, composites, electronic materials, and biomaterials).

Principles and methods of failure analysis. Novel approaches and tendencies: e.g., Artificial Intelligence and machine learning applied to engineering failure analysis and fractography.

Case studies of failures in industrial sectors (e.g., renewable energy, aerospace, biomedical, nuclear, microelectronics, marine and offshore power generation, thermal power, oil and gas, metallurgy, automotive, rail, civil construction, manufacturing, consumer goods and mining).

Regulatory agencies, legal matters, ethical issues, and insurance in the failure analysis industry.

Role of engineering failure analysis in the design, materials, fabrication, operation, maintenance, prevention, safety, risk assessment, reliability analysis, life prediction and safety evaluation, quality assurance and business management.

Philosophical aspects of "lessons learned" approach and impact on the welfare of the community.
