Research and Markets Adds Experimental Mechanics Papers

DUBLIN, Ireland --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Advances in Experimental Mechanics VII" report to its offering.

Series: Applied Mechanics and Materials 24–25

Category: Selected, peer reviewed papers from the 7th International Conference on Advances in Experimental Mechanics, 7th–9th September, 2010, School of Engineering, University of Liverpool, U.K.

Authors: R.A.W. Mines and J.M. Dulieu-Barton

The 2010 Annual British Society for Strain Measurement Conference is the seventh in the series on Advances in Experimental Mechanics, and the fifth time that the papers have been presented as a volume in the Applied Mechanics and Materials series. The 61 papers making up this volume reflect strikingly the diverse nature of experimental mechanics. The fourteen sessions address various disciplines: e.g. aerospace, mechanical and civil engineering and state-of-the-art technologies such as biomechanics, novel sensors, and composite and cellular materials. The papers were contributed by workers in both academia and industry; with half of the contributions coming from outside of the UK: thus reflecting the international flavour of this event. This volume will be essential reading for all of those interested in the subject.
