Strength and ductility of materials at high strain rate of deformation are important for design engineers working in a wide range of industries, especially in gas turbine engine blades. Split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) apparatus is a popular method of characterizing the high strain rate behaviour of materials. The results from the split-Hokinson pressure bar tests are further used in mathematical models such as Johnson-Cook model, Zerelli - Armstrong model and so on for correlation purposes. Split-Hopkinson pressure bar tests take place in a very short duration of time (less than a second) but require significant effort in arranging the apparatus (several hours to days) and replications could be a daunting task. The present review work focuses on some of the critical test parameters that influence the test results. Specimen dimensions, its alignment in the split-Hopkinson pressure bar apparatus and location of strain gauges are critical parameters to be checked before the test (pre-testing) while selecting the accurate signal data processing technique (post-testing) to filter the noise which is critical to get meaningful test results. This review work focuses on the effect of three pre-testing parameters and signal data processing techniques on the high strain rate test results and summarizes the salient findings.
