Description

From the characterization of materials to accelerated life testing, experimentation with solids and structures is present in all stages of the design of mechanical devices. Sometimes only an experimental model can bring the necessary elements for understanding, the physics under study just being too complex for an efficient numerical model.
This book presents the classical tools in the experimental approach to mechanical engineering, as well as the methods that have revolutionized the field over the past 20 years: photomechanics, signal processing, statistical data analysis, design of experiments, uncertainty analysis, etc.
Experimental Mechanics of Solids and Structures also replaces mechanical testing in a larger context: firstly, that of the experimental model, with its own hypotheses; then that of the knowledge acquisition process, which is structured and robust; finally, that of a reliable analysis of the results obtained, in a context where uncertainty could be important.

Contents

1. Mechanical Tests.
2. A Few Sensors Used in Mechanics.
3. Optical Full-Field Methods.
4. Basic Tools for Measurement Methods.
5. Exercises.

About the Authors

Jérôme Molimard is Professor at the Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne, France. His current research interests concern the use in mechanical engineering of optical field methods, which he has applied to lubrication, composite materials and the biomechanics of soft tissues.
