Instrumented Impact

Instrumented Impact Testing is designed to provide load versus deformation response of plastics under essentially multiaxial deformation conditions at impact velocities. It further provides a measure of the rate sensitivity of the material to impact. ARDL provides load and displacement sensor measurements to aid in material selection, evaluation and design.
