    Abstract

    Development of a compact instrumented impacting apparatus for dynamic fracture studies designed on the lines of a swing pendulum machine is described. Salient features of the system and instrumentation calibration procedures are presented. The dynamic characteristics of the system are explained with the aid of a simple inertial model. Results of dynamic fracture experiments conducted on aluminum 6061 alloy and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) are discussed.
