The presentation will provide an introduction to high speed testing including the basic concepts, reasons and theory before detailing the Hopkinson bar and Drop Hammer tests that are carried out at Mondragon University (Spain). To clearly demonstrate the usefulness and application of these test results, some current industrial cases will also be described: simulation of cold forging processes, simulation of shear cutting processes and the simulation of impact hot forging processes. Final conclusions and future outlook will then be provided.
This event is being hosted by the NAFEMS Impact, Shock and Crash Working Group. For more information and to get involved go to the Impact, Shock and Crash Working Group webpage.
The Impact, Shock and Crash Working Group has formed an online Community to enable NAFEMS members to learn more and interact with other engineers and scientists who have an interest in Impact, Shock and Crash analysis. For more information and to get involved go to the Impact Shock Crash Community webpage.
Dr. Lander GALDOS is senior researcher of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Production at Mondragon Unibertsitatea (MU), where he develops research activities related to metal forming and forging and lectures several manufacturing related subjects. He has led several national and European projects focused on creating innovative manufacturing processes.
Dr. Erice is Ramon y Cajal and Ikerbasque Research Fellow in the Department of Mechanics and Industrial Production at Mondragon Unibertsitatea (MU), where he develops research activities related to the experimental, theoretical and computational mechanics of materials and structural components subjected to extreme loading conditions such as impact. He also lectures on several solid mechanics related subjects.
Dr. Julen Agirre is full member of the Advanced Material Forming Processes research group of Mondragon Unibertsitatea, where he develops different research and lecturing activities. He is expert in hot forging simulation and microstructural evolution modelling considering extreme strain rate conditions such as hammer forging.
David Abedul is PhD student in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Production at Mondragon Unibertsitatea (MU). His research work is mainly focused on the characterization of shearing processes applied to thick metal plates (thickness ≥ 5mm) where high velocity testing is of major importance for good process modelling.
