Are there other properties that reliably offer guidance in choosing and developing armor materials, if such conventional bulk properties do not? Kindle Edition "Please retry". The weakest chapter is the one dealing with ceramics armor;therefore, a ceramist who is interested in understanding the mechanisms involved in penetration of ceramics will have to search out additional references. Organizations and individuals engaged in developing protection materials should seek to maximize penetration resistance. Other failure modes may be invoked at higher velocities.

Ballistic Materials and Penetration Mechanics - Read Online
Coverage is extended beyond that of the author's Impact Dynamics and deals with new topics in impacts involving inert materials, including the dynamic response to energetic and inert materials. Ballistic composites need to be lightweight and durable as well as exhibiting high impact resistance and damage tolerance. These bullets are typically fired at high velocities to maximize their fragmentation upon impact. An early result is due to Newton; the impact depth of any projectile is the depth that a projectile will reach before stopping in a medium; in Newtonian mechanics, a projectile stops when it has transferred its momentum to an equal mass of the medium. Shaped charges can be defended against by the use of explosive reactive armour ERA , or complex composite armour arrays.

The book looks at numerical techniques for modeling hypervelocity impact and concludes with a chapter on the penetration mechanics of textile structures. Penetration of the hollowpoint would be less than half that of a similar nonexpanding bullet, and the resulting wound or permanent cavity would be much wider.
