9th International Conference on Advances in Experimental Mechanics 

9th International Conference on Advance in Experimental Mechanics

3-5 September
Cardiff, UK

The British Society for Strain Measurement's (BSSM) 9th International Conference on Advances in Experimental Mechanics will offer industry and academia the opportunity  to discuss advances in  experimental mechanics.

Set against one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in the world, the conference will combine the modern facilities of the Cardiff School of Engineering with the traditional surroundings of the Viriamu Jones Gallery and one of Europe's finest art collections at the National Museum Cardiff* , where your conference dinner will be served.
