The Proceedings contain state-of-the-art reviews and original materials related to up-to-date developments in a wide range of optical control methods. They are devoted in particular to shape, displacement and deformation measurement, strain analysis, mechanical behavior evaluation, inspection and non-destructive testing. Three principal classes of methods are under consideration: speckle photography, holographic interferometry and speckle interferometry. Both the state-of-the-art practices and the actual leading-edge techniques are discussed within a single volume, with reference to theoretical backgrounds common to all methods. Usually, similar information is distributed over many specialised works. The book presents both conceptual and practical aspects: theoretical considerations are fully analysed and applications illustrate the emphasis on many experimental aspects.
