Strain Rate Analysis Of Aluminum Specimen Using Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar
A Split Hopkinson’s Pressure Bar apparatus capable of conducting compressive strain rate testing is designed. The
present phase of the paper is focused mostly on the stress wave generating and the subsequent data capturing. Final
experiments were conducted to obtain the calibration curve and the shapes of the generated waves of specimens. Along with
the description of the design process, final details including the assembly and testing as well are presented.
