Advanced Composites Studies
Brief descriptions of several studies are presented in this chapter. Diverse experiments are described where the common thread is composite materials. They address the mechanics of highly complex bodies. These examples were chosen to demonstrate the broad scope of moiré interferometry and to express the virtue of whole field observations. These are not in-depth reports. Instead, numerous fringe patterns are shown and discussed to familiarize the reader with real-world analysis.
