Society for Experimental Mechanics

An Official Journal of the Society for Experimental Mechanics 

Society for Experimental Mechanics
SEM is the Society for Experimental Mechanics, a professional society formed in 1943 by engineers and scientists involved in the validation of new designs and materials. The ever-increasing pressure to reduce the cost and development cycles has directed the work of these "experimentalists" toward the concept stage, predicting design performance and reliability. The dependence on the "experimentalist" has fostered a renewed interest in experimental analysis and test methods.
SEM continues to support the experimentalist's work, which is with materials, the forces that affect them, and the responses generated by the combination of the two. We provide various opportunities for the exchange of knowledge in all areas involved with experimental mechanics.
SEM Mission Statement
The Society for Experimental Mechanics is composed of international members from academia, government, and industry who are committed to interdisciplinary application, research and development, education, and active promotion of experimental methods to: (a) increase the knowledge of physical phenomena; (b) further the understanding of the behavior of materials, structures and systems; and (c) provide the necessary physical basis and verification for analytical and computational approaches to the development of engineering solutions.

    Aims and Scope


    Journal of the Dynamic Behavior of Materials is a peer reviewed archival journal on the science and engineering of material and structural response to dynamic loading emphasizing high strain-rate, impact, blast, penetration, and shock response. The journal publishes experimental, theoretical, modeling and simulation, and interdisciplinary work focused both on advancement of new techniques and application of techniques to new materials and structures. Experimental techniques will include, but not be limited to, small-scale tests for constitutive response of material such as Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar, Kolsky Pressure Bar, gas-gun and powder-gun driven plate impact, direct and flier plate drive high-explosive experiments, direct and flier plate drive laser experiments, and drop tower; small-scale integrated tests for validation of material constitutive models such as Taylor Anvil, Dynamic-Tensile-Extrusion, high-explosive driven perturbed plate experiments, shock tube loading; and integrated structure level experiments as blast, impact, crash, and penetration mechanics. The journal also covers diagnostics for dynamics experiments to include but not be limited to high-speed photography, dynamic radiography, velocimetry (PDV, mPDV, VISAR, lineVISAR, etc), gages, pins, etc. Hybrid experimental-computational papers are also encouraged. In addition to primary research articles, The Journal of Dynamic Behavior of Materials publishes review articles, brief technical notes, and applications articles that discuss important emerging technologies.
