Design & Life Assessment


We have received 135 abstracts for papers coming from EU (Italy, France, Germany, UK, Belgium, Netherland, Czeck Rep., Slovenia, Poland; Switzerland, Finland, Sweden) South Africa, India, Russia, Iran, China, Japan, Australia, USA.

More than 150 participants are expected!

 Rome May 5 – 7, 2014


The European Creep Collaborative Committee (ECCC) is currently the leading voice of European experts on subjects relating to creep, representing the views of alloy producers, plant manufacturers and end-users (utilities). ECCC has been engaged in the co-ordination of Europe-wide creep data generation, collation and assessment activities since 1991, with the aim of pooling national data resources to provide the optimum basis for creep property values for European Product and Design Standards.

For the 3th International ECCC Creep & Fracture Conference, ECCC has joined forces with world-wide key experts to bring together engineers and scientists from around the world to present and discuss the latest research and developments in all aspects of creep behaviour of high temperature industrial materials and components. The overall aim is to consolidate existing knowledge and identify future work items requiring attention from the high temperature research, design and standardisation communitiesThe Conference will also provide an opportunity to critically appraise the state-of-the-art of design and life assessment since the last ECCC Conference held in 2009.
