A one-dimensional analysis of the Taylor impact test [4] has been used to estimate the quasi-static stress for several different alloys. One criticism of this work was the use of Taylor cylinder test data to estimate the quasi-static true stress/true strain compression diagram. The one-dimensional theory does accommodate this estimate. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that this process leads to acceptable results by analyzing a series of high, medium, and low strength materials.
