ISSI-2018 · NANJING, CHINA · NOVEMBER 2-5, 2018 Second Announcement

Aims and Scope of the Symposium Organizers

China Structural Integrity Consortium,
The 2018 International Symposium on Structural including following members:
Integrity (ISSI2018) will be held at Nanjing, China, by East China University of Science and Technology
Nanjing Tech University and Special Equipment Safety Hefei General Machinery Research Institute
Supervision Inspection Institute of Jiangsu Province, China Special Equipment Inspection and Research
during November 2-5, 2018. The predecessor of the Institute
annual symposium, Fracture Mechanics series, took Special Equipment Safety Supervision Inspection
place each year from 2003 to 2009, was renamed as Institute of Jiangsu Province
Structural Integrity series after 2010, and organized Nanjing Tech University
by China Structural Integrity Consortium (CSIC). Zhejiang University
