The increasing interest to improve the description of the plastic behavior and the fracture prediction for ductile materials under complex loading conditions conducted the researchers to overcome the J2 plasticity theory. To do this more sophisticated plasticity model base on ductile damage have been implemented. Material model parameters must be identified by means of proper testing and calibration procedures requiring different loading conditions. Different types of tests must be performed, imposing multiaxial stress paths to the specimens. Tensile tests on smooth and round notched bars, plane strain tests, torsion tests, compression and combined tension–torsion tests on hollow and solid cylindrical bars must be executed. While multiple works are present in literature for model assessment and validation in quasi-static conditions, nothing can be found at high strain rate in biaxial conditions (tension-torsion). Biaxial tests in dynamic conditions are very difficult to carry out especially if you are interested to register the entire story of stress and strain. In this work, analytical and numerical study to evaluate the feasibility to carry out dynamic tension, dynamic torsion, dynamic torsion-static tension/compression and dynamic tension–dynamic torsion tests is discussed. The tests will be performed using a properly designed Split Hopkinson Bar.
