Publication date: 1 December 1955


FATIGUE of aircraft structures has recently become an important subject, particularly during the last two years, and many research organizations and aircraft manufacturers are now engaged in investigations into the problems of fatigue. Three international events dealing comprehensively with most aspects of fatigue have been arranged, and the first of these, organized by a Swedish committee of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, took place last May at the Kungliga Tekniska Hogskolan in Stockholm. The second conference, specifically concerned with fatigue of aircraft structures, will be held from January 30 to February 1, 1956, at Columbia University, New York. (Information may be obtained from Professor A. M. Freudenthal, 716 Engineering, Columbia University, New York 27, N.Y.) The entire field of metal fatigue will be covered by the third conference, organized by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, to take place in London from September 10 to 14, 1956.
