In the present study, plate impact pressure±shear friction experiments are conducted to provide insight into time-resolved dry sliding characteristics of metal on metal at normal pressures of approximately 1.5 GPa, slip speeds up to 60 m/s and interfacial temperatures as high as 8008C. The plate impact friction experiments represent a signi®cant improvement(More)

The Hybrid III 50th percentile male anthropomorphic test device (ATD) is the most widely used human impact testing surrogate and has historically been used in automotive or military testing. More recently, this ATD is finding use in applications evaluating athletic helmet protectivity, quantifying head impact dosage and estimating injury risk. But ATD(More)
OBJECT Concussion is the signature American football injury of the 21st century. Modern varsity helmets, as compared with vintage leather helmets, or "leatherheads," are widely believed to universally improve protection by reducing head impact doses and head injury risk for the 3 million young football players in the US. The object of this study was to(More)
OBJECT In spite of ample literature pointing to rotational and combined impact dosage being key contributors to head and neck injury, boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) padding is still designed to primarily reduce cranium linear acceleration. The objects of this study were to quantify preliminary linear and rotational head impact dosage for selected(More)
In the present work, we use reverse non-equilibrium molecular dynamics with adaptive intermolecular reactive empirical bond order interatomic potential to investigate sensitivity of thermal conductivity in (6, 6) single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) to side-wall defects and high temperature heat-treatment. Effects of two side-wall defect types and their(More)
We present results of a study conducted to better understand the yield and flow response of amorphous poly(bisphenol A carbonate), PC-Lexan 1 (PC), under uniaxial compression and combined compression-and-shear impact loading. A split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) is utilized to obtain nearly adiabatic uniaxial compression response of the PC in the(More)
High strain-rate compression experiments were performed with a split-Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) at 500–4000/s on cylindrical samples of a Zr-based bulk metallic glass (LM-1) in both the fully amorphous and annealed conditions. The effects of changes to the specimen geometry (i.e., L/D ratio) and the material heat treatment [i.e., annealing versus(More)
