Evaluating Impact Properties of Cement Clinker at Different Angle for Impact Indentation
Spherical impact indentation tests with different impact angles (90°, 60°, 45°, and 30°) was carried out to understand the effect of impact angles on damage degree of cement clinker. A linear rail which can adjust angle to alter impact velocity was used to guide the slipping impact head to impact the sample. The different steel wedge was used to change the impact angle. It is found that the area of damage surface for cement clinker is most serious the peak impact force for surface damage decreases but the contact indentation becomes longer with decreasing impact angle when the impact angle is 45°. Under almost the same impact velocity, the smaller the impact angle, the higher the impulse, the longer contact time, and the peak impact force of 45° is maximum.
