Blough and DeClerck at the 2024 Society for Experimental Mechanics Conference

Jason Blough and James DeClerck (both ME-EM) attended the 2024 Society for Experimental Mechanics Conference in Vancouver, Washington, from June 3–6.

According to the Society for Experimental Mechanics’ mission statement: the society is “composed of international members from academia, government, and industry who are committed to interdisciplinary application, research and development, education, and active promotion of experimental methods.” The society aims to increase the knowledge of physical phenomena; further the understanding of the behavior of materials, structures and systems; and provide the necessary physical basis and verification for analytical and computational approaches to the development of engineering solutions.

Bough and De Clerck are profiled on the society’s Executive Board page. Blough is the current president-elect for the 2023–24 year and acted as the vice president for 2022–23, while De Clerck held the positions of president, president-elect and vice president from 2022–23, 2021–22 and 2020–21, respectively.
