Providing a complete and comprehensive guide to today's structural testing methodologies, this handbook organizes and details the fundamental types of structural tests, including test methods and procedures as well as instrumentation. The tests described cover a wide range of applications, from large civil engineering structures to mechanical assemblies and miniature electronic components. You'll also find important information to help you understand the principles and restrictions which underlie the variety of measurement and diagnostic techniques used to perform structural tests. You'll learn how to assess and document measurement uncertainties, and how to insure that the appropriate safety, health and environmental safeguards have been appropriately addressed. The final chapter provides detailed example tests and structural testing case studies covering a variety of applications.
