Online Course Details:
Experimental methods exploit a particular physical phenomenon to make measurements and hence only certain information that can be recorded by an experimental technique. The course introduces the physical principle used by various experimental techniques and also provides a guideline to select an experimental technique for a given application. The role of analytical, numerical and experimental methods in solving a problem in solid mechanics is discussed. Stress and strain at a point is discussed in most courses on solid mechanics but little attention is paid on the variation of these quantities over the field of the model. Attention is drawn on the richness of whole field information provided by most of the optical techniques.

INDUSTRIES THAT WILL RECOGNIZE THIS COURSE
DRDO Labs, ISRO, HAL, BHEL R&D, L&T, TATA motors, Ashok Leyland, TVS group, Murugappa Group, Mahindra &Mahindra etc. Apart from experimental personnel, managers and groups involved with Numerical simulation are also encouraged to take this course. It would help them in validation of the numerical models. Further the administrators can appreciate the need of funds for setting up requisite experimental facilities and also the need for training experimental personnel.
