Micromechanics – a new challenge to experimental mechanics

Jacek Stupnicki, Maria Szpakowska
Quite new technologies and new constructions appearing nowadays bring about a new task to be dealt with in experimental mechanics: examination of microregions. The paper presents new experimental methods and sample applications of these methods.

Unique advantages of the described methods are: contactless and nondestructive character of the measurement and the possibility of obtaining of the full field results.
