Battelle Joint Industry Program

A synergistic approach to technical advancement.

Launched in 2001, Battelle’s Joint Industry Program (JIP) is a member-driven, Battelle-managed alliance of industrial companies working collaboratively to improve products’ fatigue-life predictability – and, in the process, to:

  • Minimize in-service failures and warranty claims
  • Optimize designs
  • Further enhance Battelle Verity methodology and software

JIP meets semi-annually to track progress, share experiences, discuss potential research topics and approve both operating budget and detailed technical scope; one of these meetings is usually in Columbus, OH, while the second is arranged by a member volunteer host.

The Benefits of a JIP Membership

JIP membership offers significant benefits to organizations in the public and private sector alike, including academic institutions – any group, in fact, charged with assessing the fatigue-life of welded structures.  It gives you access to:

  • New Battelle Verity versions, updates and refinements, often incorporating the latest JIP recommendations
  • The JIP database, which documents 5,000+ Battelle Verity fatigue tests
  • The annual JIP technical report documenting the year’s developments
  • Technical support for company-specific implementation, including up to 10 hours annually of proprietary assistance with weld-fatigue analysis issues
  • Annual training for up to five people at no additional cost
