Tonight: Learning from failure

 

Looking for lessons in failure has a long history and scientist Donald Shockey will discuss this topic in the context of recent notable failures of manmade structures. This Cafe Scientifique talk for May begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, at SRI International headquarters at Middlefield Road and Ringwood Avenue in Menlo Park.

Mr. Shockey, who is the director of the Center for Fracture Physics at SRI, will discuss projects at SRI concerned with an understanding of structural failure and how it plays into the design of better structures. His examples will range from medical devices to components for space missions.
