The effect of strain rate on mechanical properties of Al-2.3wt.%Mg alloy (AA5021) and commercial pure aluminum (purity 99.7wt.%: A1070) was investigated at room temperature. The tensile tests were conducted at strain rates from 1.0×10−4 to 1.0×103 s−1. The universal testing machine was used for strain rate 1.0×10-4 to 1.0×10−1 s−1. For the strain rate 1.0×100 s-1, the servohydraulic testing machine, which was developed by our laboratory, was used. The impact strain rate 1.0×103 s−1 was obtained using the split Hopkinson pressure bar method. The pure aluminum showed positive strain rate dependence of material strength at the investigated strain rates. In contrast, the Al-2.3wt.%Mg alloy showed the negative strain rate dependence at strain rates from 1.0×10−4 to 1.0×100 s−1. However, Al-2.3wt.%Mg alloy showed the positive strain rate dependence at strain rates from 1.0×100 to 1.0×103 s−1. It was surmised that the effect of dislocation locking by the solute Mg atoms became negligible at strain rate of approximately 1.0×100 s−1. It was confirmed that material properties for the Al-Mg alloy at the strain rate of 1.0×100 s−1 were important, since the strain rate dependence changed negative to positive around this strain rate.
