Abstract:

This report is a users manual for ARAMIS version 6 image photogrammetry for high-speed impact deformation. ARAMIS is a non-contact measurement system that calculates the strain history of a deformation event. The software renders a series of stereo images into three-dimensional displacement vectors and strain vectors as functions of time. This manual is intended to provide an overview of the operating procedure adapted for high-speed impact testing. Instructions on the use of the ARAMIS system are illustrated with an example of a high-speed projectile impact on a helmet.
