Abstract: THE THEORY OF VISCOPLASTIC BASED ON TOTAL STRAIN AND OVERSTRESS IS USED IN ORDER TO SIMULATE THE SENSITIVITY TO THE RATE OF LOADING OF TWO COMMONLY USED STAINLESS STEELS. THE CONSTITUTIVE MODEL HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED WITHIN A TRANSIENT FINITE ELEMENT COMPUTER CODE USING A STRESS UPDATE ALGORITHM BASED ON THE ELASTIC PREDICTOR-RETURN MAPPING CONCEPT. BOTH MONOTONIC AND CYCLIC LOADING CONDITIONS ARE CONSIDERED IN ONE OR MORE SPACE DIMENSIONS. EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS SHOWING STRAIN-RATE DEPENDENCE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE ARE REPORTED FOR BOTH TYPES OF STEEL AND USED FOR CALIBRATING THE VISCOPLASTIC NUMERICAL MODEL. AN EXPLICIT DEPENDENCE OF THE NONLINEAR VISCOSITY FUNCTION ON THE STRAIN RATE HAS BEEN OBTAINED AND THE CALIBRATION MODEL IS FOUND TO YIELD RESULTS WHICH ARE IN EXCELLENT AGREEMENT WITH THE EXPERIMENTAL DATA. FINALLY THE CALIBRATED VISCOPLASTIC MODEL IS APPLIED TO PREDICT THE RESPONSE OF TWO REPRESENTATIVE STRUCTURES SUBJECTED TO IMPULSIVE LOADING. THE RESULTS INDICATE A SIGNIFICANT EFFECT OF THE RATE OF LOADING ON THE INTERNAL STRESS DISTRIBUTION.
