on Experimental Stress
In this e-Book, a novel attempt is made to smoothly integrate experimental results in real-time to have laboratory experience in a lecture class.
e-book covers exhaustively the famous techniques like Photoelasticity
and Strain gauges and provides a decent exposure to Moiré, Brittle
coatings, Holography, Speckle Methods, Thermoelastic Stress Analysis,
Digital Image Correlation, Caustics and Coherent Gradient Sensor. In addition,
the book has the most recent and state of the art and exhaustive treatment
of Digital Photoelasticity.
Wholesome engineering education is possible only if students are exposed to various experimental techniques. It is seen in many Institutions, that when a faculty with experimental background retires, the courses also vanish from the curriculum! This is because teaching experimental methods needed special expertise.
The book is interactive and even faculty/engineers with analytical or numerical background, with little practice can comfortably handle the basic experimental course and with time there is a chance that they too get interested in experimental work and become asset to their organizations!
The e-Book not only provides basic concepts on understanding and appreciating the data interpretation from various techniques but also provides detailed practical information such as casting of photoelastic sheets and pasting of strain gauges to implement the techniques in the laboratory.
