A manual to conduct IBII tests

This document attempts to transfer the technology of the Image-Based Inertial Impact (IBII) test to external laboratories. It contains all implementation details: the design and commissioning of the gas gun, triggering and imaging, and data analysis. Extensive data are provided with the report, including the blueprints of the gas gun and Matlab programmes to process the recorded images to extract material properties.
