Slow, intermediate and high strain rate experiments with UT geometries are performed on aluminum AA7075-T6 sheet metal at various temperatures. The comprehensive experimental program characterizes the plasticity response at temperatures ranging from 20°C to 360°C and at strain rates ranging from 0.001/s to 150/s. The elevated temperature - elevated strain rate experiments are performed on a hydraulic tensile testing machine and a Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar system with a Load Inversion Device along with a custom-made induction heating system. A machine learning based modified Johnson-Cook plasticity model is calibrated to capture the complex strain rate and temperature effect of the observed hardening response.
