The paper covers static and dynamic testing of structural building steels grades B500A and RB500W in tension and compression under wide range of strain rates. The spilt Hopkinson bar technique apparatus is used to investigate the dynamic behaviours both in compression and tension. A detailed knowledge of mechanical properties of those steels at different strain rates at two modes of large deformation is crucial, because the steels are the most commonly used in building structures as well as in protective structures due to their good strength characteristics.
