The behavior of the 6008 aluminum alloy under impact loading with different strain rates is experimentally studied. Quasi-static compressive stress-strain curves of these materials areobtained in this study by using an RPL100 materials-testing machine and a split Hopkinson pressure bar. As the strain rate increases, the yield stress and the peak stress of the materials are found to increase significantly. The adiabatic temperature rise generated during the impact process makes the materials soften, so that the rate of the increase in the flow stress gradually decreases with an increase in the strain rate. Based on the dislocation dynamics theory, a viscoplastic dynamic constitutive model for the 6008 aluminum alloy is constructed. The model accurately describes and predicts the mechanical behavior of this material under impact compression at room temperature.
