Transient inertial effects are usually considered detrimental in high strain rate testing procedures and design efforts have been focusing on limiting their influence on the test specimen response. This presentation will show how they can be used to an advantage as an embedded volume load cell when full-field deformation measurements are available. Inverse identification can then be performed, relieving many constraints in the design of the tests. This has the potential for an in-depth revisit of high strain rate testing procedures in the future.
