ESIA10 present goals – future challenges

Full proceedings of the 10th International conference on Engineering Structural Integrity Assessment held in Manchester, 19 – 20 May 2009. The continued safe and reliable operation of structures and components across industry sectors offers considerable economic advantages to manufacturers, operators and society at large. For example, integrity and reliability issues arise during service and require effective maintenance action, whilst, as plant approaches the normal design life, intelligent management of life extension can yield considerable commercial benefit. In addition, the design, manufacture and operation of new plant should incorporate the lessons learned on engineering integrity and apply the new techniques and methodologies developed. Editors: P.E.J. Flewitt, P.F. Heyes, A. Holt, J.F. Knott, B. Daniels, I. Le May, H. Pisarski, J.K. Sharples, A. Sherry, B. Tomkins, K. Wright, J. Yates;
