About this book
Photomechanics describes the use of photonics techniques for the nondestructive measurement of variations in certain important physical quantities such as displacements, strains, densities, etc. in experimental solid mechanics and flow. Offering authoritative reviews by internationally recognized experts, the book provides a wealth of information on the essential principles and methods today available in this realm. These include holographic and moiré interferometry, speckle metrology, two- and three-dimensional computer-vision methods as well as laser-Doppler and pulsed-laser velocimetries. In a concise and simple way the book provides a substantial background for researchers and practicing engineers.
