The dashed lines represent regression fits through the data A modified target was constructed for some of the tests to provide an estimate of the projectile velocity a! different depths of penetration. This experimental configuration is shown in Fig. 3. 0-cm wide cavity drilled into the mild steel backup plate. 5-cm thick, honeycomb sheet was placed at the rear of the glass plates to provide confinement but minimize penetratiodperforation resistance.

As a result, for the present designs, the total benefit of adding honeycomb is not significant. ), and to find the optimal performances honeycomb can provide. For armor systems, especially personal body annors, in addition to the capability of stopping the projectile, the deformation of the armor is also an important measure of armor performance. The less the deformation is, the more protection the armor provides. Figure 7 shows the deflections of the back faceplate at the center of the panel (AU arc 3D calculations).

Fi, 37 MATHEMATICAL MODEL As explained previously the tests performed in this research load the specimen in both longitudinal and radial direction, making the problem triaxial and non-trivial to interpret. The following mathematical model completely solves the elastic problem and allows the calculation of quantities like p m u r e , confinement pressure and equivalent stress in the specimen. 5 Pressure (GPa) Figure 3, Quasistatic tests performed during this reserrch project. The problem, as presented in Figure I, is axisymmetric and should be solved with Lame's rdial displacement field: B u=Ar+- r (3) where u is the displacement in the radial direction of a steel or Sic-N point, r the distance from the axis of symmeby to the point, and A and B are constants that depend on the boundary conditions.
