This paper presents an experimental investigation on the influence of the temperature on the reduced activation steel Eurofer97 under uniaxial tensile loads at high strain rate. Round undamaged specimens of this material having gauge length 5 mm, diameter 3 mm, were tested in universal machine to obtain its stress-strain relation under quasi-static condition (0.001s−1), and in modified Hopkinson bar to study its mechanical behaviour at high strain rates (300 s−1, 1000 s−1) respectively. The tests at high strain rate were carried out at 450 °C and at nitrogen temperature. Finally, the parameters of the Zerilli-Armstrong constitutive material relationship were obtained.
