    STP 1411 provides 14 peer reviewed papers that examine the range of the latest computer applications in the modern test lab. Test engineers, who face the challenge of keeping current with the latest information on test control, data acquisition, data analysis and interpretation, modeling, and integration of testing and design, will find this volume to be an invaluable resource.

    Topics include:

    • Latest applications of computer hardware and software in the mechanical testing laboratory.

    • Specific fatigue and fracture test system implementations, especially as related to more challenging applications, such as high frequency or thermomechanical fatigue testing.

    • How fatigue or fracture data are applied in the design process to yield safer structures with longer service lives.

    • Strategies for coping with greater amounts of recorded data.

    • Challenges faced in full-scale testing, either from a control or end-level editing viewpoint.
