Research and application activities in impact biomechanics require dynamic response of biological tissues under high-rate loading. However, experimental difficulties have limited the characterization of soft tissues under such loading conditions. In this paper, we identify these technical challenges in dynamic compression experiments using a split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) and present the remedies to overcome them. In order to subject the specimens to valid dynamic testing conditions, in… CONTINUE READING
