Conference paper


The dynamic response of structures and materials to high strain-rate loading is of great interest in a variety of civilian and military applications. As well recognized, the main differences between the dynamic response of structures under high strain rates and the static response are attributed to two dynamic effects: the inertia effect (wave effect) and the strain rate effect. The former is studied by wave propagation in various forms, either explicitly or implicitly, and the latter has promoted the studies on all kinds of rate-dependent constitutive relations and failure criteria.
