Project FORCE: Advanced Manufacturing and Materials

Research Area: Structural Integrity
Lead Researchers: Solid Mechanics Research Group, University of Bristol
Partners: Frazer-Nash Consultancy, Nuclear AMRC, Veqter, Cammell Laird
Funders: BEIS Nuclear Innovation Programme

Project FORCE involves three work packages focussed on developing structural integrity assessment methods with an aim to reduce the blockers for the wide-scale use of power beam welding techniques in the nuclear industry. The work packages are:

  1. Weld Residual Stress Modelling
  2. Probabilistic Methods for Structural Integrity
  3. Fracture in Power Beam Welds
