Cast iron conference in Argentina – day 2

New day and new presentations! Some of us prepared for the day with a morning run along the beach whereas others enjoyed a sleep out.

Viktor Norman from Linköping university gave a presentation about thermomechanical fatigue of a compacted graphite iron and discussed the damage evolution. It was interesting to see images of micro cracks occurring in the material during fatigue, which then developed to larger cracks and a final fracture.

At night, it was time for the conference banquet. We were served both delicious food, drinks and an amazing tango dance and music show.
