The high strain rate mechanical properties have been measured for three types of solder: 63%Sn 37%Pb, 96.5Sn 3.5 Ag and 95. 5Sn 3. 8Ag 0. 7Cu. Bulk properties were measured using a split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) at strain rates from 500 to 3000 s -1. A novel method bas been designed and used to measure the shear strength of solder joints at low and high rates, using an Instron and SHPB respectively.
