Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar compression testing of an aluminum alloy: Effect of lubricant type
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2003)
The Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB), or Kolsky Bar, is widely used for studying the dynamic mechanical properties of metals and other materials. A cylindrical specimen is sandwiched between the incident and transmitter ...
High strain-rate compression testing of a short-fiber reinforced aluminum composite
Compression behavior of 15–26 Vf% Saffil™ short-fiber reinforced Al-1.17wt.%Cu alloy metal matrix composites has been determined over a strain-rate range of approximately 10−4 to 2×103 s−1. The strain-rate sensitivity of ...
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 ...
