Hopkinson Centenary Conference Cambridge UK

Stefan Hiermaier

In 2014, it will be 100 years that the Hopkinson Bar Methodology, an epoch making invention by Bertram Hopkinson (1894 – 1918), was introduced. With his 1914 seminal paper, "A method of measuring the pressure produced in the detonation of high explosives or by the impact of bullets" Phil. Trans. R. Soc. Lond. A213 437-456, Bertram Hopkinson pioneered the development of an experimental set-up which even nowadays seems to be in greater demand than ever.DYMAT, the European Association for research into the dynamic behaviour of materials and its applications, welcomes you to celebrate the Hopkinson centenary with a Conference to be held at Cambridge University September 9-11, 2014.
