DEPENDENCE OF THE STRENGTH OF METALS ON THE RATE OF STRAIN,
TECHNION - ISRAEL INST OF TECH HAIFA
The thermodynamic theory of strength of a standard linear solid is specialized to the case of simple tension. Tensile experiments are carried out with four different kinds of mild steel at three different rates of loading. It is found that the coefficient of viscous damping decreases with increasing rate of loading. Both the yield stress and the yield strain in crease with increasing rate of loading. Author
