Scope Environmentally assisted degradation (EAD) posts a severe limitation on the durability and reliability of structural metal components, and has been a major concern for aerospace, navy, nuclear and petroleum industries. This symposium hopes to bring together researchers from both academia and industry to discuss recent advances, in theory, computational modeling and experiment, related to EAD, and seeks technical abstracts/papers on (but not limited to) the following themes:
1. Hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen assisted cracking of structural metals
2. Stress-corrosion cracking and corrosion-fatigue cracking
3. Non-destructive methods for quantitative measurement of the deterioration process
4. Prevention of life threatening failures and life-cycle assessment
5. Case studies and state-of-the-art reviews of the topics within the general scope of EAD are also encouraged.
