STMG: How we are governed

The activities of the Structural Technology and Materials Group (STMG) Committee relate to materials testing, materials behaviour modelling, numerical stress analysis, theoretical and experimental stress analysis, and their relationship to design, structural integrity and component life assessment methods. A wide range of materials, including steel, aluminium alloys, fibre reinforced composites, metal matrix composites and ceramics, are of interest. 

The Group aims to disseminate information related to the fatigue, fracture, creep, creep/fatigue, corrosion etc, of the above materials and the effects which manufacturing processes have on these material properties to its members. This is achieved by the organisation of seminars, conferences and short courses on these topics. 

In order to ensure that STMG's activities have a direct relevance to current industrial and academic research, there are representatives from a wide range of companies and organisations.

The committee welcomes suggestions on how to improve the service it provides to the membership.
