Future possibilities for this website include such interrelated topics as:

  • Damage detection for structural health monitoring
     
  • Rationale for the accelerated testing of materials life
     
  • High rate failure processes
     
  • The size/scale effect in failure
     
  • Designing with Brittle Materials
     

Other specific topics of interest and relevance may evolve.
