Ductile fracture experiments are carried out at different stress states, strain rates and temperatures on a range of flat Mars 300 steel specimens to calibrate both a plasticity and a fracture model. To predict the onset of fracture a stress state and strain rate-dependent Hosford–Coulomb fracture initiation model is used. Single material impact experiments are performed on targets of homogenous and perforated Mars 300 plates by accelerating cylindrical Mars 300 impactors in a single-stage gas gun. It is shown that the chosen modeling approach allows accurate modeling of the plastic response as well as the fracture patterns.
