Simulating a High-Speed Meteor or Missile Impact (image) Duke University Share Print E-Mail Caption These are frames from a high-speed video of a metal object slamming into a bed of artificial soil, sand or rock. Shown at slow (top), medium (middle) and high impact speeds (bottom), the changing impact forces illuminated in each frame help explain why soil and sand get stronger when they are struck harder.
