Abstract:

This report summarizes work performed over a 12-year period concerned with the mechanical properties of materials deformed under high strain rate or impact conditions. The work included the development of uniaxial and biaxial testing equipment for dynamic plastic deformation studies, the use of this equipment for generating stress-strain-strain rate relations for a number of metals and alloys over a wide temperature range, and the correlation of this data in the form of appropriate constitutive equations. A list of publications resulting from this work is included.
