Opportunity to contribute to a textbook chapter on 'Experimental Mechanics' for an Elsevier publication

We have been asked by a fellow member of the Society to circulate the opportunity below. If this is of interest to you, please contact Pablo Ruiz directly by Friday 29 March 2024.

Opportunity to contribute to a book chapter on ‘Experimental Mechanics’ for an Elsevier publication:

The editor is Prof. Vadim Silberschmidt and the book is a forthcoming 4th edition of Mechanics of Materials, which he'll be authoring and is extending an invitation to Experimental Mechanics expert colleagues to contribute a chapter (the one in the last edition is outdated, with too much focus on photoelasticity and strain gauges, so ideal to include DIC, TSA, ESPI, grid method, etc).

This is an ideal opportunity for some early career researchers that would like to strengthen their CV with the freedom to add their specific expert view on experimental mechanics methods or, of course, senior experts with some time to devote to this.

If you are interested, please get in touch with Dr Pablo D Ruiz,

40th DANUBIA-ADRIA SYMPOSIUM on Advances in Experimental Mechanics

24- 27 September, 2024 Gdansk, Warsaw

Danubia-Adria Symposia have a long tradition and it is organized under the auspices of the Danubia-Adria Society (DAS) on Experimental Methods founded in 1983. DA brings together internationally recognized experts and young researchers.


29 - 31 October 2024, Clermont-Ferrand , France

Both the chairs of PhotoMechanics and the International DIC Society are glad to welcome you to Clermont-Ferrand (France) in October 2024 for a joint conference between PhotoMechanics and iDICs!

This joint conference will focus on full field measurement techniques and their applications in experimental solid mechanics.

Aim and Scope
Classical procedures used in experimental solid mechanics have been significantly modified by recent advances in optical measurement methods, image processing and infrared thermography. These full-field measurement techniques lead to high resolution displacement, strain and temperature maps which open new and attractive fields of investigation. The purpose of the PM-iDICs 2024 conference is to provide an international forum for academics and practitioners to promote the new possibilities offered by these techniques and to discuss their impact on the mechanical characterization of materials and structures.

Conference themes
development and application of techniques such as moiré/speckle interferometry, grid methods, photoelasticity, digital image or volume correlation, and holography in experimental solid mechanics
comparison, benchmarking and identification of technique suitability for specific applications techniques for measurement from nano to large scales and their applications in solid mechanics
detection and characterization of cracks and damage
infrared thermography and its application to thermoelasticity, damage and fatigue analysis
stress and strain field analysis
identification of the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures from full-field measurements, including hybrid methods
Themes are opened to any subjects related to Photomech
Conference format
A book of abstracts will be available for the conference. The aim is to keep the meeting as informal as possible, and no paper proceedings will be published. The scientific committee will propose a selection of papers for publication in a special issue of Strain, the International Journal for Strain Measurement published by Wiley. Selected papers will be collected during the conference
