RNS: Three days workshop on ‘Remaining Life Assessment & Failure of Engineering Components (RFec’23) kicked off today at CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.
Participants from some of the country’s premier organisations such as NTPC, Indian Navy and BPCL are attending the workshop in anticipation of rich exposure to the expertise and state-of-the-art facilities of CSIR-NML.
The workshop will give the participants a comprehensive glimpse of remaining life assessment and failure investigation protocols that can act as guidelines while assessing the structural integrity of engineering components in their respective organizations.
The inaugural function started with the welcome address by Dr. Mita Tarafder, Chief Scientist and Head-Knowledge Resources and Information Technology Division wherein she briefed about CSIR-NML’s longstanding legacy in component integrity evaluation and failure investigations since 1953.
This was followed by the briefing about the workshop by Dr. Raghuvir Singh, Chief Scientist of the Materials Engineering Division of CSIR-NML and Technical Co-coordinator of the programme.
After an introduction session with the participants, the inaugural function was concluded by Dr. Mainak Ghosh, Senior Principal Scientist, Materials Engineering Division. The workshop is from 11 to 13 April, covering a broad range of activities, from basic theories to detailed case studies and demonstrations.
