The present work aims at identifying an elastic-viscoplastic material behaviour over a wide strain and strain-rate range (up to 0.1 and 1000 s-1 respectively), using the so-called Virtual Fields Method. To define the experimental campaign, a design process has been set. This relies on the numerical optimization of the setup - notably the specimen shape ? with respects to user-defined criteria. Finally, the selected configuration ensures an accurate and robust identification of material parameters.
