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 first TMF-Workshop was held at BAM in 2005 on the occasion of the development of a European Code of Practice for TMF testing. It brought together approx. 70 European and international
experts. The second TMF-Workshop was held in 2011 with approx. 100 attendees and the 3rd TMF-Workshop was held in 2016 with 90 participants from 17 countries.
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.
