Mechanical Waves and Strain-Rate Effects in Metals

  • Harry G. Hopkins
Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


The dependence of the mechanical behaviour of certain metals, particularly mild steel, upon strain-rate has been well known and studied now for a long time. Investigations of strain-rate effects in metals have both interest and importance.
