Abstract:

Experimental methods and techniques for studying the dynamic response of materials are discussed. Descriptions cover uniaxial and multiaxial stress testing at strain rates up to 1,000sec, temperatures up to 4000C and heating rates up to 10,000Csec measurements of elastic constants as functions of temperature up to 300C and pressure up to 10 kbars flat-plate impact techniques for uniaxial strain testing at impact velocities up to 8 mmmicrosec hugoniot equation of state measurements with x-cut quartz gages and streak camera wave profile studies using laser velocity interferometer, manganin gage, slanted resistance wire and magnetic wire techniques and spall fracture studies using active free surface velocity vs. time and recovery metallographic examination methods. Where appropriate, data reduction and analysis procedures are described.
