Designed and developed under the guidance of Dr. T Yella Reddy and Dr. Vijayasimha Reddy B G.The split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) technique is currently the most popular measurement technique for the determination of material properties at a high-strain rate. The SHPB method is applicable when a specimen is deformed nearly uniformly at a constant strain rate under dynamically equilibrated stresses, and the propagation of the elastic waves through the input and output bars is described by the one-dimensional wave theory.

SHPB setup comprises of three bars, the striker bar, incident bar and transmission bar made from the same materials and diameter. Striker bar of different lengths (100 mm to 300 mm) are necessary to be used as a projectile launcher from the gun. The specimen will be sandwiched between the incident bar and transmission bar and a uni-axial compressive wave is introduced in the incident bar by impacting the striker bar co-axially to the incident bar. The stress wave propagates to the specimen. A part of the stress wave is reflected to the incident bar in form of a tension wave and the remaining part is transmitted to the specimen and which in turn is transmitted to the transmission bar in the form of a compressive wave due to material impedance. The stress waves in the incident and transmission bar are monitored by strain gauges mounted at the central section of bars and amplified using a dynamic strain amplifier. The amplified signals are recorded in a digital signal oscilloscope and processed to characterize the mechanical properties of materials.

The knowledge of material properties involved in impact is critical in different technological areas in order to guarantee safe operations. In order to evaluate the impact damage on materials and cloth, specific equipment tools are needed. An experimental gas gun should operate in a similar way to a conventional gun with powder. The main difference is constituted by the means of achieving the necessary pressure to accelerate the projectile. As a conventional gun utilizes the combustion of a propellant charge, a gas gun operates with a compressed gas reservoir. Light-gas guns are employed to test materials and composites for their possible application as armors, for both persons and vehicles. On a smaller scale, it is possible to simulate the impact of a stone on a driving vehicle on accelerated velocities or of ice rocks on a travelling aircraft.

In a pin-on-disc wear tester, a pin is loaded against a flat rotating disc specimen such that a circular wear path is described by the machine. The machine can be used to evaluate wear and friction properties of materials under pure sliding conditions. Either disc or pin can serve as specimen, while the other as counter face. Pin with various geometries can be used. The machine is made up of the following assemblies spindle assembly, loading lever assembly, sliding plate assembly etc., all assemblies are mounted on a base plate over structure. The wear test machine is as shown in the Figure above.
