Abstract:

Equipment was purchased to carry out experiments to characterize the dynamic response and failure of polymer composites under dynamic compressive loads. A high speed framing camera with variable frames, instrumentation amplifiers for load cells, strain gage signals, and high-speed data acquisition were purchases. Details are given in the report. The total budget with cost sharing was 370,000.
