The PGEM Conference brings together PhD/MPhil postgraduate students and early career researchers involved in the field of Engineering measurement and experimental techniques in stress, strain and vibration analysis. PGEM offers the opportunity to discuss research and network in a low pressure/ informal environment. Best Presentation Competition sponsored by Instron with Prizes of £125, £75 and £50.
Early Career Events
Something about supporting/opportunities for early careers.
‘Experimental mechanics’ can be defined as the investigation by experimental means of the mechanical behaviour of engineering systems subjected to load. The system can be a structure, a material, soft matter such as human tissue, a fluid-structure coupling; the list is practically endless. Implicit in the definition is that some kind of measurement system is used to capture a quantity that describes the system’s behaviour. This is a 5 day event.
The Young Stress Analyst Competition is held annually alongside the BSSM's International Conference on Experimental Mechanics. Finalists are invited to present their work during the conference, which is judged by a panel of leading industrialists and researchers from academia. All finalists receive a cash prize, free conference registration, including accommodation and refreshments and free BSSM membership.
