It is a challenge to apply the infrared detector to a test at higher strain rate because lots of articles report that the detector has an extremelyhigh responsiveness. However, all the research works about the measurement of temperature is focused on 103 s-1 of the strain rate achieved by the split Hopkinson pressure bar test. To evaluate the thermo-mechanical behaviour of materials in higher strain rate range, a method for measuring the temperature in Taylor impact test is required to establish. Additionally, a use of the fiber should be considered to protect the detector from any damages by the impact of the specimen and realize the measurement in the point-like area. In this study, an optically-measuring system of temperature with the infrared detector and PIR fiber is designed. Then, the designed system is introduced into the apparatus based on the instrumented Taylor impact test proposed recently. The temperature rise at a local point on the surface of pure aluminium is measured during the test. Then, a calculation for distribution of temperature from a heat conduction equation is proposed.
