This project stems out of Professor Fabrice Pierron’s EPSRC Established Career Fellowship project called Photodyn (Innovative photomechanical approaches in identification of the dynamic mechanical behaviour of materials). This project aimed at the development of novel high strain rate test methods based on ultra-high speed deformation and inverse identification.
