Slide 14 Test Sample - The test coupon is mounted on alignment pins in the holes - The test coupon is then clamped to the static and moving ends Note: the elongated side of the specimen is clamped to the static end (this reduces the vibration and enables the dynamic loads to be captured more faithfully) - A slack adaptor is used to allow the machine to accelerate to the test speed before loading the test coupon Strain Rate Sensitivity in Engineering Applications Tata Steel Load Measurement Load: Load cell is used for slower strain rates (up to 1/s) Strain gauge is used for higher strain rate tests (10/s-200/s) For higher strain rates, the load is calculated from the strain gauge strain measurement P=AEe (P-Load, A-Area, E-Elastic Modulus, e-strain) Validated by calibrating P vs e on the slow rate machine Slide 15

Slide 21 Strain Rate Testing Standards Developments in Strain Measurement To measure the gauge length extension directly, a non-contact, inertia free system is required (i.e. laser measurement or Digital Image Correlation (DIC)). Before 2007, it was considered acceptable to derive the gauge length extension from the machine displacements - this required a test coupon design that minimised the coupon strain outside of the gauge length (i.e. a very sudden transition from gauge width to full sample width) and a correction function to convert machine displacement to gauge length extension. Shorter, narrower gauge lengths could be used, which enabled higher strain rates to be tested. The ISO standard now requires the strain to be measured directly this gives obvious benefits, but has led to longer and wider gauge lengths, which tends to lower the maximum strain rates that can be achieved using servo-hydraulic equipment Not all global test standards have made direct strain measurement a requirement, but in Europe this practice is now established. Tata Steel use DIC methods for measuring the strain in the gauge length directly DIC for high speed tests is also limited by the maximum speed and resolution of the camera currently we use a frame rate of 40000 frames per second (fps) to measure strain rates of up to 200/s for a gauge length of 12.5mm Strain Rate Sensitivity in Engineering Applications Tata Steel Slide 22 Crash: Axial Crash test Test specifications
