How to SHPB
Combine multiple or enhanced test setups, on the same double-wide Flat Base testing platform, in the same system footprint. This enhanced capability allows for improved testing throughput across your entire lab operation by using simultaneous test setups. It also increases lab space efficiency while allowing for creative HSRT test setups that haven’t been realized yet!
Capture the fundamental. The baseline for dynamic material property characterization is a controlled impact of bars and specimen with a precisely aligned system to 0.001”/foot. The REL Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar system imparts a known amount of energy to a test specimen in 50-800 microseconds obtaining strain rates from 102 to 104 per second.
