Elastic-viscoplastic constitutive equations based on a single internal state variable which is a function of plastic work are used to calculate the response of copper to a six decade change of strain rate over a range of temperatures. Calculations were performed for the conditions of an experimental program on copper by Senseny, Duffy, and Hawley, namely, temperatures ranging from 77°K to 523°K and strain rate jumps from 2 × 10−4 sec−1 to 3 × 102 sec−1 at three strain levels. The computed results are in good agreement with the experiments and show similar strain rate and strain rate history effects. Relations are obtained for the temperature dependence of certain parameters in the equations which indicate correspondence between plastic working and temperature and between strain rate sensitivity and temperature.
