A simulation method consisting of a constitutive model, originally developed for numerical modeling of percussive drilling, based on viscoplasticity and damage mechanics and a FEM based numerical technique for simulating the dynamic Brazilian disc test using the Split Hopkinson pressure bar apparatus is presented. The model incorporates the strain rate-dependency via linear viscoplastic hardening/softening...
