This state-of-the-art volume covers a wide range of subjects in experimental mechanics including optical methods of stress analysis (photoelasticity, moiré, etc.), composite materials, sandwich construction, fracture mechanics, fatigue and damage, nondestructive evaluation, dynamic problems, foam, materials, fiber optic sensors, speckle metrology, digital image processing, nanotechnology, neutron diffraction and synchrotron radiation methods.Written by leading scientists in the field, the book contains 71 papers presented at the Symposium on "Recent Advances in Experimental Mechanics", which was organized in honor of Professor I.M. Daniel at Virginia Tech, on June 23-28, 2002. The book presents a thorough review of the latest problems of experimental mechanics. It is a vital supplement and reference source for researchers, practicing engineers and students.
