The Split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) test method, which is composed of three cylindrical bars, measuring devices and frames, is known for its reliable technique of acquiring the mechanical properties of specimens under a high strain rate. This paper demonstrates the processing of design and fabrication of SHPB. First of all, numerical analysis is applied in order to determine the design parameters of SHPB apparatus and verify the validity of design for a SHPB facility. Following this, SHPB apparatus were fabricated in accordance with acquired design parameters by simulation. In order to verify the validity of SHPB apparatus, experimental results using Al6061-T6 were compared with numerical data obtained from a corresponding simulation. The result of this comparative study demonstrates the applicability and validity of the fabricated apparatus.
