Course Goals :
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.
