The latest volume in this series examines new and nontraditional methods of measuring mechanical properties in materials and structures including: imaging systems to infer deformation fields, acoustic emission techniques, and unique applications and sensors. Many of these novel methods allow measurement of features and parameters that in the past have been difficult if not impossible to sense and distinguish.
13 peer-reviewed papers are divided into 4 sections:
Fracture Mechanics and Structural Integrity
Damage Evolution and Measurement
Strain and Displacement Measurement Techniques
Current Status and Future Sensor Development: Panel Discussion Summary
Nontraditional Methods of Sensing Stress, Strain and Damage in Materials and Structures: Second Volume
