Hohenemser and Prager [1] proposed a constitutive law for a solid of Bingham type We use a form of this law to study some cases of longitudinal impact on a bar causing large plastic strains. The results are intended to be of use in the design of impact tests on structural metals and in the interpretation of data from them, as well as helpful in guiding similar studies on materials with more complex plastic strain rate behavior.
