Abstract

"Two rods of 7075-T651 aluminum are longitudinally impacted to investigate the material's dynamic properties. The test rod, initially at rest, is instrumented with strain gages to record the strain-time history after the impact rod, accelerated to uniform velocity by an air gun launcher, strikes the test rod. A camera records the strain-time pattern displayed on an oscilloscope. The experiment indicates a consistent rise time of approximately 9 µsec. Simple one-dimensional theory correlates well with the experimental data. Compensation is included for the transverse sensitivity of the gages used. The dynamic values for both the modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio are found to be nearly identical with their statically determined values"--Abstract, page ii.
