High Speed Compressibility of Foams and Elastomers

Test ID  

A Dynatup 8250 drop tower is used to determine and report a compressive stress/strain curve.  The test is performed at a constant velocity.  Load and corresponding specimen deflection are recorded.  Five replicates are performed.

10 - prisms [details]


This test provides high strain rate stress-strain data which can be used in a foam modeling for the simulation of impact situations.
