Part A is devoted to the mechanical and electronic instrumentations. Part B is devoted to experiments and experimental interpretations of elastic (and /or viscoelastic) moduli. As part A presents details on instrumentation, chapters in part B concisely present the aforementioned set-ups and discussion of experimental results.

About the Authors

Yvon Chevalier is Emeritus Professor at the Institut Superieur de Mécanique de Paris (SUPMECA), France. Since 2000 he has been coeditor-in-chief of the Mecanique et Industries journal, supported by the French Association of Mechanics. He is a well-known expert in the dynamics of composite materials and the propagation of waves in heterogenous materials. He also has extensive experience in the areas of hyper-elasticity and non-linear viscoelasticity of rubber materials.
Jean Tuong Vinh is Emeritus University Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Paris VI in France. He carries out research into theoretical viscoelasticity, non-linear functional Volterra series, computer algorithms in signal processing, frequency Hilbert transform, special impact testing, wave dispersion in rods and continuous elements and the solution of related inverse problems.
