Studying hypervelocity impact phenomena

Studying hypervelocity impact phenomena
Using a Specialised Imaging SIM8 ultra fast framing camera researchers at the Thiot Ingenierie Shock Physics Laboratory have been able study high velocity impacts of aluminium spheres against an aluminum target at velocities in excess of 4000m/s. Interest in hypervelocity has traditionally been driven by the military community but is increasingly of interest to the space / aerospace industry for areas of research such as enhancing the survivability of aircraft to in-flight explosions and in protecting valuable space satellites from damage from stellar debris.
