Plastic Behavior and Constitutive Modeling of Armor Steel over Wide Temperature and Strain Rate Ranges
Plastic behavior of 603 armor steel is studied at strain rates ranging from 0.001 s−1 to 4500 s−1, and temperature from 288 K to 873 K. Emphasis is placed on the effects of temperature, strain rate, and plastic strain on flow stress. Based on experimental results, the JC and the KHL models are used to simulate flow stress of this material. By comparing the model prediction and the experimental results of strain rate jump tests, the KHL model is shown to have a better prediction of plastic behavior under complex loading conditions for this material, especially in the dynamic region.
