A split Hopkinson pressure bar can test different types of specimens, I would like to know what types of materials that are suitable to be tested with this method?

    $\begingroup$ +1 Are you asking for the geometrical form, the material should be so that it can be tested? If so usually you would take samples with circular cross-sections and in some cases, square cross-sections are preferred. Or is the question regarding some other physical parameter? It would be nice if you could expand a bit more on that :) $\endgroup$ – Anoop A Nair Jan 1 at 14:58
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you @AnoopANair, well I am asking in the form of ductile materials, brittle materials or so? or generally it can be applied to any kind of materials? $\endgroup$ – Sina M Jan 1 at 15:24
