An overview is presented of recent developments and the current status of several experimental mechanics methods, i.e., strain gages, moiré, photoelasticity, and interferometry. Examples of applications of these methods are given. Progress has been noted in all aspects, including methodology, data acquisition instrumentation, data processing, and range of applications. The trend is to tackle more difficult problems and to take full advantage of technological advances.
