HEMI recently purchased an Instron CEAST 9350 Drop Tower for impact research, continuing our mission to protect people, structures, and the planet. This versatile equipment can collide materials from composites to finished products at speeds from 2 to 55 miles per hour. The tower will be used to test materials’ failure under impact with applications ranging from asteroid collision prevention to protective material design for the U.S. Army. It is located in Malone Hall and will be ready to use by the end of the summer.
The Summer 2016 issue of JHU Engineering Magazine featured the new acquisition in the Tech Tools section. Click here to learn more about the Drop Tower and its capabilities.
