This paper presents a comprehensive study of a direct impact compression loading on an Electrolytic Tough-Pitch copper (Cu-ETP). The aim of the study is to provide reliable experimental data in this dynamic loading using high-speed video camera records and real time projectile deceleration profiles. Test set-up has been optimized to ensure an efficient recovery of the samples after the Dynamic Plastic Deformation (DPD) process in the 103 to 104 s-1 strain rate range regime. Structural investigations have been made on post-mortem samples: microstructure investigations of recovered samples have shown more structural changes in terms of crystallographic texture and grain sizes. Post-mortem tensile tests have also been carried out to evaluate yield strength behavior of the Cu-ETP copper after the DPD process. Numerical simulations have been performed to evaluate the ability of empirical models to reproduce recorded signals. In-situ results (time evolution of strain, strain rate, temperature, etc.) given by the numerical analysis have contributed to enrich the post-mortem analysis.
