Spall Strength of Tungsten Carbide

  title={Spall Strength of Tungsten Carbide},
  author={D. Dandekar},
Abstract : Spall strength of a hot-pressed tungsten carbide manufactured by Cercom Inc. referred to as CER-WC. is determined by performing plane shock wave experiments as a function of shock-induced compressive stress and its duration. Shock-induced stress varied between 3.5 and 24 GPa. The duration of shock-induced stress. i.e.. pulse with. ranged from 0.35 to 1.13 mus. These experiments showed that CER-WC retained substantial spall strength to 24 GPa. i.e.. around 3x the value of the Hugoniot… Expand
