Abstract
The instrumented drop tower at the Dockyard Laboratory (Atlantic) has been used to determine dynamic fracture parameters of metallic materials. The impact system was upgraded through a contractual activity. The upgrades include: a new data acquisition system, custom software for converting load-time data into load point displacement data, a new computer, and a new tup. This Contract Report contains a description of the upgraded equipment, instructions for its operation, a description of a method for correction of load-displacement to account for machine compliance, and the results of the calibration.
