The Danubia-Adria Society on Experimental Methods (DAS) was founded in 1983. The objective of the Society is
“to promote experimental mechanics, covering all aspects from the development to the applications of the methods, for the quality improvement of products and processes and for developing new models of education”.
To achieve this purpose the Society intends to:
- encourage exchanges of teachers and researchers between universities and other technical and scientific societies;
- develop areas of technological cooperation between researchers and technicians from different countries on bilateral and multilateral basis to contribute to the mutual scientific benefit;
- organize every year an Annual Symposium on “Development of Methods and Applications of Experimental Mechanics”;
- The DA Society is open for cooperation to developing experimental mechanics with any other societies and organisations acting in this field, with separate agreements.
