The next AFGROW Workshop will be held at Hilton Garden Inn in Ogden, UT on September 10-11, 2024.

Are you, or someone you know, interested in learning about the latest developments happening right now in Fracture Mechanics? Would you like the chance to meet a wide range of experts from across the industry? Do you want to know more about the uses and capabilities of Crack Growth Analysis tools? All of these opportunities and more are available to you at the AFGROW Users Workshop.

The purpose of the Workshop is to provide a forum for AFGROW Users to come together to exchange information and best-practices, network with peers from the industry, and get a chance to talk with the AFGROW developers and community.

Group discussions will also provide direction for new capabilities and improvements, best practice methods, and tips and tricks from the experts. The AFGROW team will also provide information on our latest development efforts for the upcoming year.

Who should attend: Engineers, researchers, technologists, managers who are users of AFGROW, and/or anyone that has an interest in Crack Growth Analysis tools.

Venue: Hilton Garden Inn Ogden hotel is situated in the heart of downtown Ogden, offering easy access to the city's best local restaurants and entertainment venues. Complimentary parking is available for guests in the parking garage directly behind the hotel.
