Please, see reportage.
On the 11th May 2013, invited by Prof. Pengwan Chen, Prof. D. Rittel of Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) visited BIT and gave a lecture entitled “Is Adiabatic Shear Failure Really Adiabatic?”.
Prof. D. Rittel’s research fields contain experimental mechanics, materials mechanics and impact dynamics. In this talk, he presented the experimental results on the evolution of temperature and microstructure of materials. He and his group proposed a new behavior’s law on the adiabatic shear failure based on the dynamically stored energy of cold work.
Dr. K. Shemtov-Yona presents her research on Reshet B with Anat Dolev.
