Split Hopkinson Tension Bar(SHTB) test system ALT1200

——Built in dynamic stress-strain analysis software to provide external testing services

1、 Brief intbaruction of split Hopkinson Tension Bar (SHTB) alt1200

Hopkinson bar is an effective experimental device to study the dynamic mechanical properties of materials under one-dimensional stress. Since Kolsky invented it in 1949 and used it to study the dynamic mechanical properties of materials under one-dimensional stress state, the experimental device has been improved a lot and the experimental technology has been improved continuously.

The device tests the strain of the specimen when it is impacted by the dynamic shock wave through the uniform transmission of the stress wave, and calculates the corresponding parameters such as strain rate, stress, strain energy, incident energy, transmission energy, reflection energy, particle impact velocity and high g value according to the experimental parameters.

2、 Superior performance of Hopkinson Tension Bar (SHTB) alt1200

equipment ALT1200 adopts the cabinet structure design, which directly installs the launch system and the Tension Bar system between the two operating consoles. All the spare parts are installed inside the workbench, which is neat, beautiful and practical. The launch and control system is installed in the front console, the operator can complete the operation of bullet launch and bullet recovery data processing in front of the computer, which is very convenient. The high temperature heating system and synchronous cylinder are installed in the rear console, and the target temperature can be adjusted at will through the PID control system. The water cooling system is installed outside the high temperature furnace to ensure the safety of operation. Each bar system can be installed on the same specification support platform through different diameter bar sleeve with bearing, and the pressing bar can be replaced at will. The same system can also be equipped with two sets of bases to adapt to the bar diameter of different diameters. Through the system adjustment of the bar and the launching system, the equipment can impact the classic regular square wave.
