The phenomenon of dynamic buckling is examined when the influence of material strain-rate sensitivity is retained in the basic equations for a simple elastic-plastic model with linear strain hardening when subjected to an impact by a mass. Two approaches are proposed for taking into account the material strain-rate effects and both use the Cowper-Symonds constitutive equation. The critical impact velocities depend on the impact mass and are determined for a wholly elastic material, a strain-rate insensitive elastic-plastic material and an elastic-plastic material with a dynamic yield force together with linear or nonlinear hardening due to the strain-rate effects. The results obtained show that both strain-rate sensitive models predict impact velocities which are higher than those predicted by the strain-rate insensitive idealization and that the influence of any initial imperfections is important for the three material models considered.
