Optical Detection of Impact Contact Times with a Beam Deflection Probe

We present an optical detection technique, called the beam deflection probe, to accurately measure contact times of normal-incidence impacts of steel and sapphire spheres with a transparent glass block. It exploits the deformation of the area that …


A Vibration Estimation Method for Wind Turbine Blades

This paper reports the development of a vibration monitoring system for wind turbine blades. This system is used to estimate the deflection at the tip blade on a wind turbine tower. Technical accidents of wind turbine blades have become …


Design, Manufacture, and Quasi-Static Testing of Metallic Negative Stiffness Structures within a Polymer Matrix

A composite material system comprised of a monostable negative stiffness (NS) structure within a polymer matrix was designed, fabricated, and experimentally evaluated. The monostable negative stiffness (NS) structure was designed using a …

Experimental and Numerical Analysis of Initial Plasticity in P91 Steel Small Punch Creep Samples

To date, the complex behaviour of small punch creep test (SPCT) specimens has not been completely understood, making the test hard to numerically model and the data difficult to interpret. This paper presents a novel numerical model able to …


A Review of Speckle Pattern Fabrication and Assessment for Digital Image Correlation

As a carrier of deformation information, the speckle pattern, or more exactly the random intensity distributions, which could be naturally occurred or artificially fabricated onto test samples’ surface, plays an indispensable role in digital image …

Über diese Zeitschrift

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.
