  author={Steven B. Segletes and William P. Waters},
Abstract : The exact solution to the long-rod penetration equations is revisited, in search of improvements to the solution efficiency, while simultaneously enhancing the understanding of the physical parameters that drive the solution. Substantial improvements are offered in these areas. The presentation of the solution is simplified in a way that more tightly unifies the special and general-case solutions to the problem. Added computational efficiencies are obtained by expressing the general…

On the use of the force time histories to determine the shock and steady state interface pressures exerted by the impact of a low-strength projectile
The work presented in this report examines the impact process of a 10% gelatine soft body material projectile striking a rigid target attached to a quartz force ring sensor. Using the shock Hugoniot
