What are the material properties of common structural building materials in the strain rate range of 0.001 to 100 s-1?

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) received a request for information on material properties of different common construction/building materials as functions of strain rates. Of particular interest were steels corresponding to the ASTM 992 and 1003 standards and concrete materials. DSIAC compiled a list of relevant works for this topic with the assistance of subject matter experts at Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI Austin), Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), and the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin).
