Data from a Large Diameter Compression Split-Hopkinson Bar Experiment
Data from a dynamic compression test on a woven composite material are presented below. This experiment was conducted using the large diameter SHB apparatus. The specimen is a flat composite slab that is epoxied into steel adaptors, see Figure 1. The composite is painted with a white contrast pattern on a black base-coat for 3D DIC measurements.
Wave data from the experiment is shown in Figure 2, while a stress strain curve is presented in Figure 3. Click here to see a video of this experiment. Click here to play a video of the same experiment with the axial strain contour (eyy), calculated using 3D DIC, overlaid on the image.
