Review on ballistic tribology
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, it was investigated that studies about the dynamic failure of reinforced metal matrix composites and fiber composites under high velocity impact was observed. Some of this works on this topic is experimental, and they used normal projectile or Armour piercing projectile in ballistic tests. The other works in ballistic system are computer simulations. They use finite element based program for numerical investigation. According to the studies, high velocity of projectile led to the melting of some surface layers because of the excess heat resulting from high velocity friction. However different failure mechanisms such as radial cracking, melting zones, etc. were earlier determined. In some simulation this results had been supported.
