2nd Infrastar Training School - Call for applications

The 2nd Infrastar Training School on Fatigue and Reliability Analysis of Structures - Training for Assessment of Risk will be held at Centrale Nantes (France) from 14-17 April 2020.
Registrations are open. Submit your application here by March 11, 2020.
Cost: 150€ per person (excluding VAT), including ice-breaker, lunches, coffee breaks, social dinner.
The courses will provide multi-disciplinary and intersectoral basic concepts in three core fields, ranging from the design to the dismantling of the structures (bridges and wind turbines):
    1. Monitoring and auscultation.
    2. Structural and action models.
    3. Reliability, risk and decision analyses.

A participant who successfully has taken part in the Infrastar training school will be able to understand:
    1. How to smarten the structures and its benefits.
    2. How to model structural and material behaviours under loading.
    3. How to develop, perform and assess structural risks and the value of structural information.
Who should attend?
The Infrastar training school aims to provide lectures and hands-on trainings to Master and PhD students, early-stage researchers, young professionals on all aspects of asset management of civil infrastructures with respect to fatigue of materials. The participants will get additional knowledge about their own field but also about what is performed beforehand and afterwards.
Do not miss the opportunity to meet and discuss with experts: Dr Odile Abraham (Université Gustave Eiffel, ex-Ifsttar), Prof. Jochen Köhler (NTNU), Dr Ernst Niederleithinger (BAM), Dr Franziska Schmidt (Université Gustave Eiffel, ex-Ifsttar), Prof. John Dalsgaard Sørensen (AAU), Assoc. Prof. Sebastian Thöns (DTU).
