Numerical and experimental studies of damage generation in a polymer composite material at high strain rates
Samples of S2-glass/epoxy composites have been subjected to microstructural investigation after testing in compression at quasi-static and high strain rates using the split Hopkinson pressure bar. A numerical model was ...
Development of novel multilayer materials for impact applications: A combined numerical and experimental approach
A well-verified and validated numerical model was used to investigate stress wave propagation in a multilayer material subjected to impact loading. The baseline material consisted of a ceramic faceplate and composite backing ...
Split Hopkinson pressure bar multiple reloading and modeling of a 316 L stainless steel metallic hollow sphere structure
The high strain rate (600 s−1) compression deformation of a 316 L metallic hollow sphere (MHS) structure (density: 500 kg m−3; average outer hollow sphere diameter: 2 mm and wall thickness: 45 μm) was determined both ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of high strain rate mechanical behavior of a [0/45/90/ - 45] quadriaxial E-Glass/Polyester composite
Quasi-static (10−3–10−1 s−1) and high strain rate (∼900 s−1) compression behavior of an E-Glass fiber woven fabric reinforced Polyester matrix composites was investigated by using a Shimadzu AG-I testing machine and a Split ...
Modeling quasi-static and high strain rate deformation and failure behavior of a (±45) symmetric E-glass/polyester composite under compressive loading
Quasi-static (1 × 10−3–1 × 10−2 s−1) and high strain rate (∼1000 s−1) compressive mechanical response and fracture/failure of a (±45) symmetric E-glass/polyester composite along three perpendicular directions were determined ...
High strain rate reloading compresson testing of a closed-cell alumnum foam
(The European Association for Experimental Mechanics, 2007)
Aluminum (Al) closed-cell foams are materials of increasing importance because they have good energy absorption capabilities combined with good thermal and acoustic properties. They can convert much of the impact energy ...
