Ballistic materials and penetration mechanics by Roy Laible

By Roy Laible

Ballistic fabrics and Penetration Mechanics offers with ballistically protecting fabrics and penetration mechanics. The publication discusses old and functional concerns of ballistic security, together with metal armor, in addition to ballistic trying out technique, the power of a protecting fabric to prevent or decelerate a selected projectile, and the theoretical facets of penetration mechanics. It additionally highlights the significance of tension wave research within the penetration and spalling phenomena.
Organized into 12 chapters, this quantity starts with an summary of the heritage of the armor and the trendy helmet. It proceeds with a dialogue of diversifications in ballistic try tools, mistakes in attempt tools, and the significance of the hardness and geometry of either the objective and the projectile. the following chapters concentrate on the significance of fibrous armor, fabrics which are visually obvious and proof against penetration by way of high-energy projectiles and fragments, and obvious armor and ceramic composite armor. The reader is usually brought to fabrics utilized in the layout of steel armor, the function of pressure waves within the penetration challenge, and using machine simulation to research ballistic impression experiments. The ebook appears to be like at numerical innovations for modeling hypervelocity effect and concludes with a bankruptcy at the penetration mechanics of cloth buildings.

This e-book is a necessary source for scientists operating at executive, business, and college laboratories, in addition to legislations enforcement officials and others who wish details on fabrics that supply the simplest safeguard opposed to harm from affects, explosions, and bullets.

For the same weight, the fiberglass laminate was more protective than steel or aluminum. The option was also available for providing considerably more protection at a similar weight. Remembering the demise of armor in the Middle Ages, the United States military opted for reduced weight and moderately improved protection. The Doron could be molded in shapes and sizes which could fit into a specially made nylon vest with pockets carefully designed to receive such plates while maintaining maximum articulation [36,37].

A limit penetration coefficient F is defined by F = MV50/Ae, where M is the cube mass in g, e is the equivalent plate thickness in cm, A is the cube face cross section in cm 2 , and V50 is the limit velocity in m/s. F. Single Cube Test The multiple cube test was abandoned in favor of the single cube test because of greater simplicity. M The cubes were individually mounted in plastic carriers as shown in Fig. 3 and fired from rifled guns. The plastic carrier provided for rotation and gas seal for the missile.
