Abstract This report is one of a series concerning blast resistance of offshore structures. A literature survey was carried out on strain effects in steel. It was found that there is virtually no work published on the strain rate behaviour of 50D steels although the survey does contain information on steel with a similar carbon content. The various parameters defining the shape of the stress-strain curve of steel are discussed and the sensitivity of each to strain rate and temperature are examined. A discussion is also presented on glass fibre reinforced composites.
