The simulation of impact scenario against a structure requires the use of material models able to reproduce allaspects of the mechanical behaviour of the involved materials; plasticflow is one of the main aspects to bereproduced. In more detail, attention has to be paid to the investigation of strain-rate and temperature sensi-tivities, as well as their interaction, which necessitates the use of a reverse engineering approach. The presentpaper mainly focuses on the tensile behaviour and an ad-hoc testing campaign was performed on cylindrical dog-bone specimens made in Al6061T6 at different temperatures and strain-rates extending the range up to a levelwhere, at present, there is a lack in the scientific literature. The thermal softening effect was investigated inquasi-static as well as in dynamic loading conditions from room temperature up to 400 °C; while the materialstrength dependence on the strain-rate was studied up to 104s−1on miniaturized samples. Microstructureanalyses were performed to better investigate the mechanical response at different loading conditions. Theparameters of the Johnson-Cook model were identified starting from experimental data via a numerical inverseapproach based on FEM simulations. These parameters can be used for simulations of extreme loading scenariolike ballistic impact events.
