The plane-strain tension test is analyzed numerically for a material with strain and strain-rate hardening characteristics. The effect of the prescribed rate of straining is investigated for an additive logarithmic description of the material strain-rate sensitivity. The dependency to the imposed strain rate so introduced is shown to have a significant effect on several features of the load-elongation curve such as the attainment of the load maximum, the onset of localization, and the overall engineering strain.
