Nimonic 80A superalloy is frequently used due to its high creep resistance, oxidation resistance and high resistance to high temperature corrosion. On the other hand, due to compatibility of simulation of plastic deformation processes, Johnson-Cook model is chosen among the materials models such as Zerille Armstrong, Bordner Partom, Steinberg-Guinan etc. In this study, primarily, quasi-static compression tests were performed for 10-3, 10-2 and 10-1 s-1 strain rates at room temperature. Secondly, dynamic compression tests were secondly conducted at high strain rates ranging from 370 to 954 s-1 using the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) apparatus. Then, the compression tests were conducted at a temperature level from 24~200 °C at the reference strain rate. Johnson-Cook model parameters of Nimonic 80A were determined by analyzing the data obtained from the tests. Lastly, the compression simulations with finite element method (FEM) were performed in ANSYS Workbench to confirm the accuracy of the parameters. In the light of the results, it was determined that there is an average of %3.23 deviation between the experimental and the simulation values. The result showed that accuracy of the Johnson-Cook parameters for Nimonic 80A superalloy was verified with FEM
