The dynamic expansion of a circular hole in an infinite plate has been considered for rate-sensitive plastic materials by using an elastic-visco-perfertly plastic model of the exponential type. Numerical solutions have been obtained, by the method of characteristics, for the case when the hole is subjected to a constant acceleration. Solutions have been presented in the form of nondimensional plots covering a wide range of material properties and accelerations.
