Evaluation of Volume Deformation from Surface DIC Measurement

Stereo-DIC allows to track with a high accuracy the shape change and the surface displacement field of objects during deformation processes. When multiple camera arrangements are used, the shape and deformation measurement can be performed over …


Leveraging Full-Field Measurement from 3D Digital Image Correlation for Structural Identification

Within the domain of structural health monitoring (SHM) measurement techniques have primarily relied on discrete sensing strategies using sensors physically attached to the structural system of interest. These sensors have proven effective in …

Effect of Moisture Content on High Strain Rate Compressibility and Particle Breakage in Loose Sand

Soil-filled gabion structures are widely used to protect against the effects of blast and fragmentation. It is known that moisture content significantly affects the capability of such structures, but the behaviour of partially-saturated soils is …


Residual Stress Measurement in Composite Laminates Using Incremental Hole-Drilling with Power Series

Current methods for incremental hole-drilling in composite laminates have not been successfully applied in laminates of arbitrary construction or where significant variation of residual stress exists within a single ply. This work presents a …

Numerical and Experimental Studies of a Conical Striker Application for the Achievement of a True and Nominal Constant Strain Rate in SHPB Tests

The problem of ensuring both nominal and true constant strain rate in the split Hopkinson pressure bar experiment was considered through the application of the conical striker for 316 L steel specimen. The experimentally confirmed results from …

About this journal

Experimental Mechanics, the official journal of the Society for Experimental Mechanics, publishes papers in all areas of the field, including its theoretical and computational analysis. The journal addresses research in design and implementation of novel or enhanced experiments to characterize materials, structures, and systems. Readers will also find articles extending the frontiers of experimental mechanics at both large and small scales.

This journal’s coverage extends from research in solid and fluid mechanics to fields at the intersection of disciplines such as physics, chemistry, and biology. The development of new devices and technologies for metrology applications in a wide range of industrial sectors is also covered.

In addition to primary research articles, Experimental Mechanics publishes review articles, brief technical notes, and applications articles that discuss important emerging technologies.
