The Design, Construction And Experimental Verification Of A Split Hopkinson Bar, Woosoon Bai
"This thesis presents the design considerations for a dynamic loading device utilizing a projectile fired from a tube. Also included is a preliminary investigation of the stress-strain relation, under dynamic loading with the device, for a plaster known as Hydrostone. Design of the unit is based on the split Hopkinson pressure bar originally developed by Kolsky and on a similar unit in use at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, Livermore, California. The strain pulses along the pressure bars are sensed by resistance wire strain gages and displayed on an oscilloscope. The oscilloscope traces are photographed and manually digitized for insertion into ...
