2nd CIRP Conference on Surface Integrity (CSI)

28th-30th May 2014 


Post Conference Information

The 2nd CIRP CSI Conference which took place in Nottingham, 2014, was a resounding success. Over 100 attendees gathered from 19 countries which served to make for a lively event and comprehensive forum to explore the surface integrity of materials processed by modern manufacturing methods. The social aspects of the conference were also well received and between a flying visit from Robin Hood and a whiskey tasting which followed the conference dinner, there was something for everyone. The conference concluded with an extended visit to Rolls-Royce in Derby.

The local organising committee would like to thank all attendees for helping to make the conference a great success. With some confidence our community can look forward to the 3rd CIRP CSI Conference which will take place in the UNC Charlotte, USA.

The aims of the conference were to disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge on workpiece surface integrity and its influence on part quality and the functional performance of manufactured components. It focused on three major aspects of maching process:

  • Specific workpiece surface properties as a result of different processes
  • Methods of analysis/testing of the workpiece surface integrity to enable the understanding of the phenomenological aspects
  • Correlation between the propertied of surface integrity and the resulting functional performance of the components.
