The high strain rate tensile properties of annealed 2 1/4 Cr-1 Mo steel were determined and the tensile behavior from 25 to 566°C and strain rates of 2.67 × 10−6 to 144/s were described. Above 0.1/s at 25°C, both the yield stress and the ultimate tensile strength increased rapidly with increasing strain rate. As the temperature was increased, a dynamic strain aging peak appeared in the ultimate tensile strength-temperature curves. The peak height was a maximum at about 350°C and 2.67 × 10−6 /s. With increasing strain rate, a peak of decreased height occurred at progressively higher temperatures. The major effect of strain rate on ductility occurred at elevated temperatures, where a decrease in strain rate caused an increase in total elongation and reduction in area.
