Experimental Methods in Mechanics
Author: Edoardo Mazza
In the last decades experimental mechanics gained increasingly importance in our research. On one hand we believe that a significant improvement in the comprehension of mechanics theories can be achieved through experimental validation. On the other hand we enjoy the challenge of performing complex mechanical measurements, for which multidisciplinary engineering problems have to be solved.
We involve students at an early stage of their education in the activities of our laboratory (semester or diploma work).
Most of our research projects include experimental tasks. The following links should provide an overview of the variety of the experimental techniques that we have developed in our laboratories:
