Mechanical testing of RP Parts

I am interested in info (companies, people, papers, other Web sites)
related to mechanical testing of RP models made by stereolithography. In
particular, looking to perform vibration tests and spin tests of an SLA
part (turbine engine rotor) and then to correlate results with CNC
machined metal (Titanium) parts.

Interested in the as-made properties of the SLA material (strengths,
stiffness, and PARTICULARLY the anisotropic properties in X,Y, and Z
directions) and how that will affect scaling to the real

Any prior work in this area? Ideas where I can look?
