Abstract: This Master of Science thesis is realized for the Defence Research and Development for Canada (DRDC) Valcartier. In a military context, the capacity to characterise independently the material for numerical simulation is important for three reasons. First, the material used are not widely used as aeronautical and car industries material. Secondly, the material parameters militarily relevant are rarely published. Thirdly, the used of secretly developed alloys could prevent from its characterisation by an external entity. The aim of the present study is to allow the DRDC Valcartier to self-characterize ductile metals for their simulation with the model Johnson-Cook, proposed in [1] and [2]. To get to this point, the Johnson-Cook model is presented starting from the CDM theory. The characterization method proposed by Johnson and Cook in [1] and [2] is introduced. Then, the experimental tests and equipments are described. After what, the work is focused on the static parameters (A, B, n, D1, D2, and D3), since those parameters are predominant compared with others in damage mechanics [2], [16], and [27]. Few lacks are pointed out of the suggested method. Finally, an improvement of the static part of the characterization method is proposed and tested. This added part includes the used of the photogrammetry system ARAMIS to monitor the experimental tests and simulation of those tests with LS-Dyna.
