Experimental Configuration

An experimental configuration for impact testing has been designed and set-up in the context of the project. The basic idea was to design a low-cost portable impact testing module for validation and demonstration purposes. A detailed description of the experimental configuration will be included in subsequent publications. The valuable assistance of Mechanical Engineer Klaidi Lika on mechanical/electronic design and set-up is gratefully acknowledged.

The following images illustrate the experimental configuration developed in the context of the project.
