Dynamic compressive strength of silicon carbide under uniaxial compression

  title={Dynamic compressive strength of silicon carbide under uniaxial compression},
  author={Nemat and Nasser},
SiC is used in impact related applications, such as integrated armor. This necessitates development of models which describe its dynamic behavior and failure modes. Experimental results, which relate the strain rate to the compressive strength of SiC under uniaxial loading are obtained. Quasi-static tests are performed using a hydraulically driven Instron universal testing machine. Dynamic tests are performed using a modified split Hopkinson pressure bar. A marked increase is observed in the… CONTINUE READING
