The dynamic deformation behaviours of SCM 440 steel were characterized at the strain rates from 10-3 s-1 to 106 s-1. The uniaxial tensile tests at different temperature of 25 °C, 350 °C, and 700 °C were performed by a hydraulic universal testing machine equipped with a heating stage, and the compressive tests were conducted by using a spilt Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) at room temperature. Material coefficients of the Johnson-Cook constitutive model considering temperature effects were obtained based on the stressstrain relations from the experimental tests. In addition, Taylor impact tests on the SCM 440 steel were carried out to evaluate the accuracy of the determined material coefficients and characterize the dynamic behavior at the ultra-high strain rates and high temperature, by comparison with numerical simulations.
