Introduction: Material characterization provides the building blocks for engineering and designing new products and structures. Experimental Techniques publishes articles of use and interest for the practicing engineer. In this special issue of Experimental Techniques, three very important and active areas in materials characterization are covered. Four articles discuss the experimental challenges and techniques related to active material (e.g. SMP, SMA) characterization. Five articles are devoted to material testing used within the civil engineering community. Finally five articles show the application of non-contact techniques to characterize materials. All material scientists, designers, and application engineers will find these articles relevant, short and useful.
