A new split Hopkinson tensile bar design

Abstract:

This work presents a new design for a split Hopkinson tensile bar (SHTB) as well as generated representative experimental results. The new design uses a U shaped striker bar as projectile and addresses several shortcomings of classical SHTB designs using hollow striker bars. The results presented show that the non-symmetrical striker bar is capable of generating a clean and virtually oscillation free square pulse signal five times longer than typically achieved by classical striker tubes, whi...
