Welcome to the Experimental Mechanics Resource Page



This resource page is created as a part of the educational plan of the author under the National Sciences Foundation Career award, CMS-0134111 on:                            

“CAREER: Deformation Mechanisms at the Materials’ Microstructural length Scale” 

Our Objectives

This page has been created to address the gap in experimental mechanics between techniques and available technology, students' backgrounds, and techniques applied in industry.  Students, as well as practicing engineers, may not (in some instances) have the knowledge  to utilize current, cutting edge technology and methods.  This website will attempt to cover recent advances in experimental mechanics and hopefully provide more integration of these advances into mainstream engineering.



The information provided is believed to be correct at the time of writing and is meant as guidance only. No liability is assumed here about the outcome of any technique. It is the user's responsibility to verify each and every technique to comply with any design code or required standard. Changes may be necessary due to unforeseen circumstances.
