Continued research, development and construction of a state of the art impact testing lab for eyewear: Instrument calibration portion

1 December 2006


The purpose of this thesis is to calibrate a pre-existing high-velocity ballistic firing device capable of projecting various sized sports balls with variable velocities at eyewear mounted on a head form. Four sports balls have been tested and calibrated with the results displayed in a table format for easily accessible findings. A laser timer linked to the Datasource computer program was used to make precise measurements of time and speed.
