Abstract:

This review covers the dynamic deformation of metals at strain rates from the quasi-static up to about 104s-1. The emphasis is on macroscopic material behavior as it is influenced by strain rate and temperature. The results of wave propagation experiments are discussed briefly, but greater weight is placed on tests with specimens short enough so that the state of stress is homogeneous within the specimen. A brief review is presented of possible applications, such as armor penetration, metal forming, or machining.
