Dimensional Analysis and Extended Hydrodynamic Theory Applied to Long-Rod Penetration of Ceramics
Rigid and Erosive Projectiles Impact on Metallic Targets
In this chapter, the performance of the metallic targets against rigid, deformable, and erosive projectile impact is concerned. Firstly, a perforation model for rigid projectile is introduced and
Evolution of penetration mechanism induced by strain rate effect
According to the dynamic mechanical properties, in the striking velocity range, the strain rate of the projectile and target caused by penetration can reach 104 ~106 /s. The strain rate effect
Theoretical Research Progress in High-Velocity/Hypervelocity Impact on Semi-Infinite Targets
With the hypervelocity kinetic weapon and hypersonic cruise missiles research projects being carried out, the damage mechanism for high-velocity/hypervelocity projectile impact on semi-infinite


Analysis of the Noneroding Penetration of Tungsten Alloy Long Rods Into Aluminum Targets
Abstract : Data concerning the rigid/eroding-rod threshold transition are reported for hemispherical-nosed tungsten rods penetrating into thick 5083-aluminum targets. Presented data quantitatively
Terminal Ballistics Test and Analysis Guidelines for the Penetration Mechanics Branch
Abstract : The principal mission of the Penetration Mechanics Branch (PMB) of the Terminal Ballistics Division (TBD) of the Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL). Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, is
Modeling Threshold Velocity of Hemispherical and Ogival-Nose Tungsten-Alloy Penetrators Perforating Finite Aluminum Targets
Abstract : This study examines the ability of the CTH hydrocode to predict the effect of rod nose shape on the transition from rigid body to eroding rod penetration for tungsten alloy long rod
Modeling the Effect of Penetrator Nose Shape on Threshold Velocity for Thick Aluminum Targets.
Abstract : This study examines the ability of the CTH hydrocode to predict the effects of rod nose shape on the threshold impact velocity, whereby tungsten alloy long rods transition from rigid-body
Penetration of 6061-T651 Aluminum Targets With Rigid Long Rods
We developed engineering models for forces on rigid, long rods with spherical, ogival, and conical noses that penetrated rate independent, elastic-perfectly plastic targets. The spherical and
