Vision & Objective
Pulse Pressure Loading Rig
Pulse Pressure Loading Rig Test Facility
Nonlinear impact response testing of plate panels under blast pressure loads arising from explosions
Experimental study on blast - resistant characteristics of plate panels
Features of Test Facility
Universal testing machine (UTM) is used to characterize the mechanical properties and stress-strain curves of materials in quasi-static loading.
Various scenarios associated with gas leak in location and direction as well as speed can be tested.
Effects of strain rates of materials can be tested on full scale specimen in wall thickness.
Effects of temperatures at room, Arctic, cryogenic and elevated temperatures can be dealt with.
