The impact force generated by high-velocity impact of a dry ice cylindrical flier, which was accelerated with a nitrogen gas gun, was measured by a sensor which we developed. This technology is expected to be useful in many kinds of machining and civil engineering. The tensile stresgth of dry ice and the other material constants were evaluated by radial compression test (Brazilian one) and the finite element analysis. Failure views of dry ice during the impact were taken with a strobovision scope.
