High-Speed Tensile Test of High-Strength Steel

 

Introduction
High specific strength steels are utilized in modern automotive design to reduce vehicle weight and CO2 emissions. This application note reviews the effects of train rate on observed tensile strength of SPFC 980 HSS over the range of 0.0001 to 5m/sec utilizing the Shimadzu HITS system and a pin-type grip.

High-Speed Mechanical Testing & Imaging: Digital Image Correlation 
Shimadzu’s HPV-X2 Ultra-high Speed camera provides frame rates up to 10 million frames per second with state-of-the-art light sensitivity. It is known by scientists globally  as the camera of choice for advanced impact studies and fluid mechanical investigations.  It is the preferred camera for Digital Image Correlation studies of ultra-high-speed mechanical phenomena. Shimadzu’s high speed, hydraulically controlled HITS machines provides tensile or impact testing at controlled rates up to 20m/sec.  Combined with 2 HPV-X2 cameras, HITS machines are ideal for 3D DIC studies of advanced materials. Scientists worldwide depend on Shimadzu HITS systems to assist in computer modeling of new materials
