Dear all,

I'm a doctoral student in Munich and I have to make drop-tests on
muscles to investigate material properties of muscle tissue in
dependence of mucle tone.

Therefore, I have to design an experimental setup (the impactor). An
accelerator is located in the COG of the impactor. Because the vertical
acc-component is important, we firstly discussed a guided impactor to
prevent other acceleration-components and secondly a free falling
impactor.

Please let me know if anyone has experience with drop-/impact tests.
What mechanical impactor-setup (guided or free) do you use?

Best regards from Munich
