dc.description.abstract This thesis focuses on the high strain rate behavior of Maraging steel 300, High Hardness Armor (HHA) and Aluminum 5083 – H131 Alloy. These materials are used by the Department of National Defense (DND) of Canada as armor plate materials in military applications. The aim of the research is to investigate the dynamic shear-strain response of these armor materials at high strain rate loading to study the occurrence of Adiabatic Shear Bands and the subsequent failure. The effects of impact momentum and strain rates on the dynamic stress-strain curve and on the adiabatic shear failure of these armor materials under impact and torsion loading need to be investigated to evaluate their capability to withstand military conditions. en
