The results of uniaxial dynamic (strain rate up to 1E3s{-1}) tests in tension, compression and shear on the austenitic stainless steel AISI 316, ferritic steel SA 537, automotive thin sheet steel XES and Aluminium alloy AL-7108 are presented. The results have been used to calibrate some material models (Perzyna, Armstrong-Zerilli, Ludwik-Prandtl) presently implemented in FE codes. The capability and shortcomings of such models are discussed and the way to progress is this field is proposed.
