Dynamic Tri-axial Compression Experiments

Dynamic Tri-axial Compression Experiments
The experimental setup modifies a Kolsky bar by adding pressure chambers to axially and radially confine specimens before and during impact. As a result, the effect of strain rate and confinement pressure upon the material response may be determined.
