The Kinematics of Structural Testing

In structural testing, it is important to ensure that the loading that is applied to the test piece is that which is intended. If unintended constraints or instabilities arise, these will often lead to errors. The paper proposes a method of assessing the kinematic state of a test setup and enables suitable systems to be designed. R.C. Corless and Professor P.B. Morice
