Abstract

THE DYNAMIC COMPRESSIVE BEHAVIOR OF ICE IS INVESTIGATED USING A LARGE-SIZED (37 MM IN DIAMETER) MODIFIED ALUMINUM SPLIT HOPKINSON PRESSURE BAR (SHPB) WITH PULSE SHAPER AT THE STRAIN RATE FROM 500 /S TO 1200 /S. A SERIES OF RELATIVELY STABLE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS OF DYNAMIC COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH VERSUS STRAIN RATE AND A LINEAR FITTING CURVE HAVE BEEN OBTAINED BY CONTROLLING DATA SCATTER WITHIN 25%. THE COMPOSITION OF INCIDENT WAVE HAS BEEN DISCUSSED. THE EFFECTS OF PULSE SHAPER DIAMETER AND VELOCITY OF STRIKER BAR HAVE BEEN TESTED. THE PROPERTIES AND PRINCIPLES OF INCIDENT WAVE IN DIFFERENT STAGE HAS BEEN ELABORATED WHEN USING PULSE SHAPER. A THEORETICAL ANALYSIS OF PULSE SHAPER AND BAR SIZE EFFECTS ON THE RISING TIME OF INCIDENT WAVE HAS BEEN CONDUCTED. RESULTS SHOW THE THICKNESS OF PULSE SHAPER IS PROPORTIONAL TO THE RISING TIME. ENLARGING THE DIAMETER AND REDUCING THE VELOCITY OF THE STRIKER BAR COULD INCREASE THE RISING TIME AND SUPPRESS THE DISPERSION. THE DIAMETER AND WAVE IMPEDANCE OF BARS ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO THE RISING TIME.
