Teaching and Research in Experimental Mechanics. Complementarity of Theory and Experiment

  • Vagn Askegaard
Part of the CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 264)


This part of the book describes an attempt made at the Structural Research Laboratory of the Technical University of Denmark to formulate a course that emphasizes the fundamental relationship between theory and experiment and thus between teaching and research in the thermo-mechanical field.
