Showcasing novel and innovative research in Experimental Mechanics – The 16th in a series of conferences organised by the British Society for Strain Measurement showcasing novel and innovative research in Experimental Mechanics.

The conference which runs 6-8 September (Exhibition runs 7 September) will bring together internationally leading researchers across a wide range of disciplines in both academia and industry to exchange ideas and discuss new research.

The conference will be chaired and organised by a team of academics from across the UK, Professor James Marrow, University of Oxford, Dr Hari Arora, Swansea University and Dr Daniel Mulvihill, University of Glasgow.

QDUKI’s Dr. Luke Nicholls will be there, showcasing NDT and Thermal Imaging solutions from our partners InfraTec, and our range of imaging cameras from Raptor Photonics.
