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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
