Course Aims
This course constitutes a detailed treatment of the more conventional methods currently used for experimental stress analysis (photoelasticity, brittle coatings, electrical resistance strain gages, mechanical transducers, etc.); however, more recent developments in the field are also presented (moire, speckle metrology, holographic interferometry, etc.). Some part of the course is devoted to laboratory work where each student gains hands on experience in applying strain gages, in mechanical transducers, etc.
Course Goals
 
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
