Experimental Studies on the Impact Buckling of Bars and the Effect of Stress Wave
The experimental studies on the dynamic buckling of the perfect bars with three kinds of lengths under impulsive axial compression were completed and the boundary condition of clamped-fixed was realized firstly in present studies. The time-history curves of axial strain of bars under different impact velocity were recorded. According to the magnitudes of the axial strain and bifurcate time, the quantitative relation of dynamic buckling load and critical bifurcate length are achieved; according to the curves recorded, the lateral velocity of bars are computed also. The experimental results show that the dynamic buckling load of the bar is distinctly greater than the static one, the front of stress wave can be regarded as fixed and the effect of the axial stress wave in the dynamic buckling of bar must be considered.
