Impact Test on Steel Structures - An Experimental Investigation
The dynamic responses of the impact phenomena were studied experimentally using ultrasound transducer mounted at the specimen support to capture non-audible structure-borne acoustic signal generated during the impact event. A series of low velocity as well as full capacity impact tests were analysed. Analysis from the time histories record and the signal energy from the power spectral density show that the transient signal generated during the impact event have relation to the impact velocity and impact energy. This paper can be further studied in order to characterise the material properties.
