Dynamic yield strength of metals/alloys depends on loading pressure and rates sensitively. With the development of laser interferometer measurement system, extracting strength information from window/free surface velocity profiles in shock and ramp loading experiments is becoming an important method to investigate materials' dynamic response under high pressure and high strain rates. Backwards characteristics analysis method (BCAM) can analyze the velocity profiles more reasonable because it

Synthetic analyses of reverse impact experiment and graded-density impactor loading-releasing experiment suggest that BCAM can give more accurate results including sound speed-particle velocity and yield strength at high pressure than incremental impedance matching method. We use BCAM to analyze velocity profiles of Sn in shock-release experiments and obtain its shear modulus and yield strength at different shock pressure and investigate its phase transition and dynamic unloading response.
