Why should we investigate fracture and failure mechanics? From recent Boeing 737 accident  to recent fatigue cracks of new Airbus  A380,  we must use failure mechanics knowledge to save our lives. Therefore, Dr.H. Eliot Fang (Program Manager at the DOE Sandia National Labs), Dr.  Larry C. Russell (Program Manager at the Army Research Office) and I would invite you to submit abstracts to our symposium. Now the ASME website is accepting abstracts and their deadline is February 24. But I think you still can submit before March 4.  When you decide to submit abstracts, you visit this website

and setup an account (you cannot use previous year's account):

http://www.asmeconferences.org/Congress2014/ 

1.       Select track 12 "mechanics of solid, structures and fluids"

2.       Select topic 12-41 "Symposium on Failure Mechanics"

3.       Select paper type: "technical
presentation only". Applied Mechanics Division only accepts this format.

Chair of the ASME Fracture and Failure Mechanics Technical Committee
