Multicycle Indentation for Evaluation of Polymer Material Viscoelastic Characteristics

The evaluation of viscoelastic characteristics by an indentation test is required in order to separate the viscoelastic deformation and plastic deformation from the measured penetration depth. In this study, a multicycle indentation test is …


Characterization of Stress-Diffusion Coupling in Lithiated Germanium by Nanoindentation

There is currently a growing demand for low-cost, high-performance electrochemical energy storage solutions to consumer electronics, vehicle electrification and stationary power management. The successful development and deployment of such …


Strain Localization in Mild (Low Carbon) Steel Observed by Acoustic Emission - ESPI Coupling during Tensile Test

Two strain localization modes: the Piobert-Lüders band propagation and the development of necking, were investigated in uniaxial tensile tests for a low alloyed and low carbon steel. These two macroscopic localization phenomena were simultaneously …


Asymptotical Correction to Bottom Substrate Effect Arising in AFM Indentation of Thin Samples and Adherent Cells Using Conical Tips

The bottom substrate effect is one of the major sources of error in force map studies of adherent cells and thin soft samples in an atomic force microscope (AFM)-based force spectroscopy. Because of this, samples appear stiffer than the natural.


A Theoretical Model for Estimating the Peak Cutting Force of Conical Picks

The peak cutting force (PCF) estimation plays an important role in the design of cutting tools for mining excavators. In most of the existing theoretical models for cutting force prediction, the PCF is often modeled as the force on the cutting …

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.
