Results of investigation into strength and elasto-plastic properties of 30KhGSA steel are presented. The investigation was performed with planar samples using submicrosecond shockwave length technique. Shockwave amplitude varied in the range from 4 to 26 GPa and controlled with 0.2% accuracy. Steel sample temperature varied in the range from-90 °C to 670 °C. Stress wave profiles in the samples were registered with VISAR and PDV interferometers having nanosecond time resolution and measurement error better than 0.8%. Special attention was payed to the study of spall fracture incipience and development processes as well as damage recovery (healing), and shockwave passing through the damaged region in steel samples. Relaxation characteristics of dynamic elastic limit were determined. Spall strength magnitude versus strain rate and temperature characteristics was determined. The impact of polymorphic α↔ε transition in 30KhGSA steel on spall strength was studied.
