Stress Waves In Solids Kolsky.pdf

In a Kolsky bar, a sample is sandwiched between the incident and transmission bar. When the striker bar impacts the incident bar, an elastic compressive stress wave is generated. This stress wave travels through the incident bar. Upon reaching the incident bar and specimen interface, part of the wave is reflected and some part of it is transmitted through the specimen into the transmission bar (Figure 2). The pulse profile for the incident, transmitted, and reflected waves are recorded as a function of time. This pulse profile is further analyzed to determine the dynamic stress strain response of the specimen [23]. A Kolsky bar setup is customized in different ways to allow for the testing of a wide variety of materials.
