This book is a practical, systematic, and concise introduction to the study of materials behavior under high strain rate conditions and impact. Thoroughly balanced chapters like: materials deformed plastically at different strain rates, theory of wave propagation in bars, and experimental techniques applied nowadays at a wide spectrum of strain rates, offers readers compact and unique information in this area of research.The main part is a review of experimental techniques applied in materials testing at high strain rates. The book is featuring an extensive examination of numerous experimental techniques applied in identification of constitutive relations in dynamic plasticity. Also, the book addresses some particular problems met in specific experimental arrangements designed to produce dynamic deformation. Introduction to experimental techniques for materials testing at high strain rates, based on the author’s Master and Ph.D. courses, can be a vital source for work of engineers, materials scientists and students of polytechnics.
