Russian Federal Nuclear Center – VNIIEF, 607190, Sarov, Nizhniy Novgorod region, Russia
This paper is devoted to results of investigation of localized shear in as-received copper, and which was subjected to preliminary quasi-isentropic shock loading by the pressure of ∼ 30 GPa. Tests were performed with hat-shaped samples by the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar method (SHPB). The authors present estimation of quantitative characteristics of localized shear in tested materials (shear stress, relative shear strain, shear band width, relative strain rate in shear band). The paper includes data of metallographic investigations of the tested samples. Also the authors made an attempt of numerical simulation of stress field change during formation.
