High Speed Video Recording

Mechanical “fast” events :
■ Fracture of structure under mechanical loads
■ Fast crack propagation
■ Impact analysis, harpoon test…

  • Mechanical “fast” events

    Fracture of structure

Equipment

3 high speed PHOTRON cameras up to 675 000 frames per seconds (fps).

DIC systems3

System set-up

The cameras are positionned around the area to cover. Objective zoom up to 300 mm of local lenght can be used to increase the distance between the cameras and the impact area. The measurement can be remoted up to 300 m or more using a fiberoptics connection.

Results

Image and video files.

Main Benefits

Allows the fine analysis of fast mechanical events and to understand the behaviour of structures.
