The effects of high strain rate, dynamic biaxial loading and deformation mode on the mechanical properties of AISI 316 austenitic stainless steel in as-received and pre-damaged conditions are reported. The results of this research have been used to prepare similar investigations for SA 537 Class I ferritic steel used for the containment shell of LWR; the first results of such investigations are reported. A programme to study the mechanical properties at high strain rate of plain concrete with real size aggregate are described.
