This special ESIS publication concentrates on dynamic test standard methods and the analysis of the data they produce. This is a topic of increasing interest and has applications in nuclear power, many areas of transport and military technologies. The papers represent a spectrum views and cover applications to a range of materials. Novel solutions for particular problems are described in detail, for example cases are studied for which only very small material samples are available.
