A finite element method proposed by Ortiz et al. (1987) is used to study shear band formation in rate dependent and rate independent pressure sensitive solids under dynamic loading. Under these conditions, shear bands are observed to propagate in an irregular fashion in time and space. In particular, the development of multiple shear bands appears to be a prevalent mechanism of deformation at sufficiently high impact velocities.
