Optical EngineeringDesign and analysis of a cineradiographic x-ray imaging system for capturing dynamic deformation of materials

Innovations in x-ray imaging are described to evaluate spatial and temporal dissipation and relaxation dynamics in materials. A system is constructed employing five sets of image planes orthogonal to the target, such that the centerline image-plane orthogonal axes are coplanar. Variable pulser firing sequences flash five x-ray tubes, capturing temporal sequences of interest, and controlled coincident firing sequences characterize ballistic impact events in three dimensions.
