Abstract:

Two methods of producing high velocity liquid impact on solid targets are described. The jet method is described in full detail and the work aimed at relating jet impact damage to that produced by drop impact is fully discussed. High speed photography has been used extensively to study impact phenomena, and pressure measurements have been made using 250 micrometers diameter transducers. A hydrostatic test apparatus has been developed for measuring the residual strength of brittle specimens following impact. With glasses, large strength losses can occur before the damage reaches visible dimensions. The factors affecting the residual strength curves are discussed. Author
