dc.description.abstract This paper presents a model for the simulation of the impact of projectiles of high kinetic energy on lightweight ceramic/metal armours. The work was financed jointly by the Defence Ministries of Spain, Italy, Holland and Denmark as part of a project among nations for the development of tools for the design of this type of armour. The model consists of a series of differential equations incorporating the most essential phenomena of the impact process, formulated after a close study of a series of real fire tests. It features a nucleus of calculation into which the equations may in time be integrated, and may also include a user interface. This practical, preliminary design tool's efficacy is amply confirmed by test results.
dc.description.sponsorship The authors are indebted to the Research & Development Department of Empresa Nacional Santa Bárbara (Spain) for the performance of the ballistic tests and the X-ray shadowgraphs. This work is part of the EUCLID RTP 3.2 project, supported by the Ministries of Defence of Spain, Denmark, Holland and Italy. The above project has been developed with the collaboration of several companies and research centres of the aforementioned countries.
