2024 SEM Annual Conference

2024 SEM Annual Conference and Exposition on Experimental and Applied Mechanics
Hilton Vancouver Washington  |  Vancouver, WA, USA  |  June 3–6, 2024



The SEM Annual Conference and Exposition focuses on all areas of research and applications pertaining to experimental mechanics, and has evolved to encompass the latest technologies supporting optical methods; additive & advanced manufacturing; dynamic behavior of materials; biological systems; micro-and nano mechanics; fatigue and fracture; composite and multifunctional materials; residual stress; inverse problem methodologies; thermomechanics; and time dependent materials.

This broad focus on experimental mechanics includes topics in digital image and digital volume correlation techniques, speed impacts to shock and blast, durability and extreme environmental effects, model/experiment integration, materials for advanced manufacturing, damage detection and non destructive testing, tools spanning various length scales and new experimental techniques and methods to address real-life applications, research and collaborative efforts across all disciplines complementing experimental mechanics.
