Velocity factors: its creation and relation to strain rate & chemical composition

Sep 30, 2019

Currently, fender performance data in catalogs is presented either in constant velocity (CV) with a compression velocity of 0.33-1.33 mm/s, or Rated Performance Data (RPD). CV performance data is multiplied by velocity factor (VF) (calculated at 150 mm/s) to convert to RPD. However, there is rarely advice on the creation of velocity factors and effects of velocity on the CV performance data within the catalog.
