It is demonstrated that, for relatively mild conditions on the thermal-viscous flow law, the structure of all adiabatic shear bands is the same within scalings that depend only on simple material properties. This fact in turn suggests that measurements made in the neighborhood of a band, together with the known canonical structure, may provide a window into material response under extreme conditions that are not accessible by ordinary laboratory means.
