History of SESA/SEM National Meetings
SEM’s rich heritage, and that of the SEM Annual Conference, eminated from the very popular Eastern Photoelasticity Conferences of the 30’s and 40’s. It was at the "17th Semi-annual Eastern Photoelasticity Conference and Experimental Stress Symposium," in 1943, that the need was recognized for a formal organization dedicated to the exchange of information concerning strain gages, brittle coatings and photoelasticity as techniques in the experimental determination of stress. Thus, the Society for Experimental Stress Analysis, now known as the Society for Experimental Mechanics, was formed.
