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 historic and sensible issues of ballistic security, together with steel armor, in addition to ballistic trying out technique, the power of a protecting fabric to prevent or decelerate a specific projectile, and the theoretical facets of penetration mechanics. It additionally highlights the significance of rigidity 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 fashionable helmet. It proceeds with a dialogue of adaptations in ballistic try out tools, mistakes in try out equipment, and the significance of the hardness and geometry of either the objective and the projectile. the subsequent chapters specialize in the significance of fibrous armor, fabrics which are visually obvious and proof against penetration through high-energy projectiles and fragments, and obvious armor and ceramic composite armor. The reader can also be brought to fabrics utilized in the layout of metal armor, the position of pressure waves within the penetration challenge, and using desktop simulation to research ballistic effect experiments. The ebook appears at numerical innovations for modeling hypervelocity influence and concludes with a bankruptcy at the penetration mechanics of cloth constructions.

This publication is a worthwhile source for scientists operating at executive, commercial, and collage laboratories, in addition to legislations enforcement officials and others who wish details on fabrics that supply the easiest security opposed to harm from affects, explosions, and bullets.

Finally, variations in the mechanical properties of shell steel are so wide that shell fragments display a broad range of deformation and fracture characteristics, thus influencing their ability to penetrate hard metallic armor materials and affecting the ballistic limit. However, against fabric or plastic armors which are relatively soft, the hardness of the projectile does not affect the ballistic perform­ ance significantly.
