Steady State Penetration of Compressible Rigid Perfectly Plastic Targets


Steady state axisymmetric deformations of a homogeneous, isotropic, compressible and rigid perfectly plastic target being penetrated by a rigid cylindrical penetrator with a hemispherical nose are studied by the finite element method. The steady state is reached with respect to an observer situated on the penetrator nose and moving with it. Tillotson’s… (More)
