Determination of Yield Surfaces in Accordance With ISO 16842 Using an Optimized Cruciform Test Specimen

Background: For the standard ISO 16842 cruciform test specimen, stresses obtained from the gauge area are far below the ultimate tensile strength due to high stress concentrations at the slit ends which lead to premature failure. Objective: To …

Cyclic Strain Heterogeneity and Damage Formation in Rolled Magnesium Via In Situ Microscopic Image Correlation

Inherently tied to the complexity of their deformation mechanisms, Magnesium alloys show a high propensity for strain localization at multiple length-scales. Understanding this aspect of Magnesium deformation is essential for enabling …

Evaluation of the VDA 238–100 Tight Radius Bend Test for Plane Strain Fracture Characterization of Automotive Sheet Metals

Accurate characterization of the fracture limit in plane strain tension of automotive sheet metals is critical for the design and crash performance of structural components. Plane strain bending using the VDA 238–100 V-bend test has potential for …

An Indirect Experimental Measurement Method for Contact Length Identification in Non-conforming Frictionless Contact

Background: The non-conforming contact usually induce stress concentration as the interaction only occurs at a small interface. Theoretical and numerical investigations have shown that the contact stress distribution and maximum pressure are …

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.
