The application of classic analytic constitutive models to the analysis of the Taylor rod-impact test will be outlined. The present use of the Taylor test in validating modern non-analytic constitutive models in finite element codes is reviewed. Recent modifications to the original experimental configuration have extended the application of the test to materials with more complex mechanical behaviour than fully dense metals. Examples include polymers, brittle materials and metal foams.
