The field of experimental stress analysis undergone great transformations following the ongoing high-technology revolution. This revolution gave such impetus to theoretical modeling and numerical simulation, that created the need for the role of experimental mechanics to be defended. Rather than making experimentation less important, this technological revolution provides new opportunities and new challenges. The best approach to the new challenging problems is still a judicious and interactive combination off experimentation and theoretical modeling. To prove the effectiveness of this combination, composite materials are experimentally and theoretically investigated.
