High Velocity Impact Simulations

Lecturer (assistant)
TypePractical course
Duration4 SWS
Language of instructionGerman
Position within curriculaSee TUMonline


Theoretical considerations on launchers for particle acceleration (e.g. mechanical, asdynamic, electrothermal and plasmadynamic accelerators). Basics of the measurement techniques in the hypervelocity regime (e.g. high speed photographie, velocity measurement, voltage and current measurement). Application of hypervelocity (e.g. Space debris simulation, data of material under high load and pressure, development of space experiments). Preparation and performance of experiments in the laboratory (e.g. electromagnetic acceleration, Bumper-shield demonstration, shock initiation, photographie)
