Coefficients and constants of a microstructure-based internal state variable (ISV) plasticity damage model for pure copper have been calibrated and used for damage modeling and simulation. Experimental stress-strain curves obtained from Cu samples at different strain rate and temperature levels provide a benchmark for the calibration work. Instron quasi-static tester and split-Hopkinson pressure bar are used to obtain low-to-high strain rates. Calibration process and techniques are described in this paper. The calibrated material model is used for high-speed impact analysis to predict the impact properties of Cu. In the numerical impact scenario, a 100 mm by 100 mm Cu plate with a thickness of 10 mm will be penetrated by a 50 mm-long Ni rod with a diameter of 10mm. The thickness of 10 mm was selected for the Cu plate so that the Ni-Cu penetration through the thickness can be well observed through the simulations and the effects of the ductility of Cu on its plasticity deformation during the penetration can be displayed. Also, that thickness had been used by some researchers when investigating penetration mechanics of other materials. Therefore the penetration resistance of Cu can be compared to that of other metallic materials based on the simulation results obtained from this study. Through this study, the efficiency of this ISV model in simulating high-speed impact process is verified. Functions and roles of each of material constant in that model are also demonstrated.
