Mechanical Testing and Evaluation
This article illustrates the momentum-trapping scheme in the incident bar and stress-reversal technique which is used to change the strain rate during the course of Hopkinson bar compression or tension experiments. It describes techniques to recover the sample after it has been subjected to a cycle of compression followed by tension or tension followed by compression with illustrations. The article provides information on the recovery dynamic testing of hard materials such as ceramics and ceramic composites and explains high-temperature dynamic recovery tests. The recovery of the sample that has been subjected to a single stress pulse allows a number of interesting applications, a few of which are reviewed.
