High-rate mechanical deformation of materials generally involves nonlinear and non-equilibrium processes coupled with various mechanical, thermal, and physical characteristics. To quantitatively understand the complex high-rate deformation, advanced experimental methods and proper modeling/simulation tools are essential. The topics of this symposium include but are not limited to in-situ and real-time experiments, dynamic failure experiments, impact phenomenology experiments, shock physics experiments, computational framework, constitutive models, and model calibration/validation.
