Experiment-3: Steel Tube Impact Tests at Lehigh University
Experiment Type: Large Scale
Description: These tests were conducted to study the effect of a??nonstructurala?? mass on impact force and duration during an axial in-air impact. A 20-ft steel tube consists of a standard AISC rectangular HSS 64 ?? 38 ?? 4.8 (2.5 ?? 1.5 ?? 3/16 in.). Steel plates were rigidly attached along the length of steel tube to represent the "nonstructural" mass.
The tube was instrumented with 7 strain gauges with a recording frequency of 50 kHz.
