|High Speed Testing||
9 Jul 2019
|University of Warwick, UK||Workshop|
Auditorium and mezzanine of the IDL (International Digital Lab) part of the Warwick Manufacturing Group Catapult (WMG)
Venue Chair: Dave Williams WMG
Aims and scope:
The event will include discussions and presentations from industry experts around techniques for the measurement of strain in high rate testing including:
Professor Fabrice PierronUniversity of Southampton
Image-based inertial high strain rate tests
Dr Paul HooperResearch Fellow, Imperial College London
High speed imaging and applications in metals, glass and composites
Dr. Ian ButterworthWMG, Test Facility Engineer
High strain rate testing of lightweight materials, opportunities and challenges
High Value Manufacturing CatapultWMG
WMG and catapult introduction
Dr Hari Arora Swansea University
In situ real-time assessment of biomaterial deformation using synchrotron tomography
Dr Yanhong Chen University of Oxford
Dynamic behaviour of lightweight materials based on high-speed imaging
The three areas covered will be development of new materials for applications such as supersonic aerospace travel, infrastructure protection and automotive crash structures.
People using high rate tensile machines, split Hopkinson bar tests or other impact or ballistic tests.
There will be an exhibition of High Speed Imaging equipment from various manufacturers.
