I would like to get your opinion on the feasibility and practicability of my project idea.
For the qualification of different damping materials, I have thought about a test setup that is as cost-effective as possible, but which should still provide meaningful measured values.
In the following I will describe my idea of the experimental setup:
A hollow metal ball, filled with the measurement technology and foam, is dropped from a height of 3 meters onto the damping material to be tested. During this process, the measurement technique records the acceleration values.
The metrology itself consists of an Arduino, power supply, some sort of data storage or transmission, and accelerometers (which are attached directly to the inside of the metal sphere). Since I am aiming for a sample rate of 10kHz, I believe based on my research that multiple accelerometers will need to be used. This would allow their limited sample rate to be added up to the desired sample rate of 10kHz.
What do you think about it.
I will be happy to hear from you. Thanks.
