Paper Abstract

A high-speed framing camera (framing rates up to 1.65 x 106s-1) has been used to follow the damage in NaC1 and LiF crystals by the impact of spheres of soda-lime glass and tungsten of diameter 0.1 - lmm and velocity up to 300 ms-1. The damage takes place in two stages. During the loading, plastic flow occurs on {110} planes causing cracks on shear planes, and is followed by fast cleavage cracks on {100} planes containing the impact-axis. During the particle rebound the primary cleavage cracks stop propagating, but several cracks form on cleavage planes parallel to the impacted surface. The maximum strain rates in these experiments are ~105 s-1; this leads to a considerable in-crease in the hardness of these solids.
