  Tacon/ECA seminar on Engineering Critical Assessment
26/11/2015 Many metal structures and industrial components are designed to withstand severe static and cyclic loads. Their integrity is affected by the presence and/or development of defects. Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) serves to evaluate detected or assumed defects. There is an industry necessity for better understanding the benefit and application of these structural integrity assessments. To address this need, the Metal Structures Centre (OCAS, Belgian Welding Institute and Soete Laboratory, Ghent University) organizes a seminar at the Technologiepark 935 (Zwijnaarde) on May 19, 2016. Concrete case studies from various industry sectors will be presented and the opportunity for networking with international colleagues will encourage open and inter-disciplinary discussions.

  The first Ageing Pipelines Conference (7-9 October 2015, Ostend, Belgium): a success!
10/10/2015 Soete Laboratory, Tiratsoo Technical and Clarion Technical Conferences organised the first edition of the Ageing Pipelines Conference. The conference took place in Ostend, Belgium from 7 to 9 October 2015.
Having received 102 attendants from 13 different countries spanning the entire world (including Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia), we can look back at a successful first edition of the conference. The event was attended by pipeline operators, regulatory bodies, manufacturers, research institutes and design consultants, thus attracting a balanced audience. This highlights the need for a better understanding of ageing infrastructures, which is becoming an increasingly hot topic in the world of pipelines.
