This newly revised and updated edition of the classic Handbook on Experimental Mechanics documents both the traditional methods as well as the new principles involved in stress analysis of materials. The emergence of new materials and new disciplines, together with the escalating use of on- and off-line computers for rapid data processing and the combined use of experimental and numerical techniques have greatly expanded the capabilities of experimental mechanics.
Twenty-seven internationally renowned scholars have contributed their collective experience to produce this comprehensive handbook. While covering traditional methods, such as strain gage instrumentation, the most widely used experimental technique, the book also discusses the new experimental techniques such als holography, holographic interferometry, geometric moire, moire interferometry, image processing, and modal analysis, which have emerged as practical tools in the broader field of experimental mechanics.
The Handbook on Experimental Mechanics is strongly recommended for mechanical engineers, aeronautical and aerospace engineers, structural engineers, and chemical engineers requiring an authoritative reference covering both time-honored methods and new techniques in experimental mechanics.
