Impact Velocity

Impact velocity is the velocity of the striker relative to the support at the moment of impact. Depending on the test method, the striker can be the insert (head) of the tup (energy carrier with falling mass) for drop tower systems, or the striking nose of the pendulum (hammer) for pendulum-type systems.
