Abstract
This report gives the results obtained when testing high strength steel (AlgoTuf 400F) at high strain rates using a torsion Hopkinson bar constructed at the University of Manitoba. Defence Research and Development Canada – Valcartier supplied the plate in which the specimens were machined through the thickness. Each specimen was machined with thin walls and two hexagonal ends. The specimens were tested with different angles of twists, which controlled the applied strain rate. Three specimens were tested at each angle of twist. The specimens were tested at the following angles of twist: 1.5°, 4°, 8° and 10° at room temperature and the 10° angle of twist was also tested at 200°C and at 500°C. Using a calculating procedure given in the report, shear stress – strain curves were obtained for all specimens and were presented. Also, an Excel spreadsheet was provided for each specimen tested.
