A novel experimental research approach that differs substantially from the majority of previous studies is pursued. It consists of performing novel plate impact experiments at low and elevated temperatures. Through variations in temperature, it is possible to study the role of thermal activation on damage and inelastic mechanisms. The technique was used to study variation in the Hugoniot elastic limit (HEL), plastic flow and spallation of Ti-6Al-4V, and to explore thermal activation mechanisms in the formation of the so-called failure waves in soda-lime glass.
