Armour Materials, Theory, and Design by Paul J. Hazell

By Paul J. Hazell

Highlights fresh Advances in Materials/Armour Technology

As lengthy as clash exists on the earth, security applied sciences will constantly be favorite. Armour: fabrics, idea, and Design describes the prevailing and rising safety applied sciences which are presently using the newest advances in armour platforms. This booklet explains the speculation, purposes, and fabric technological know-how features of recent armour layout as they're utilized in relation to automobiles, ships, group of workers, and structures, and explores the technology and expertise used to supply safeguard opposed to blasts and ballistic assaults. It covers fabrics applied sciences utilized in safeguard; addresses the approach results of including blast-wave shaping to cars, in addition to the impression at the human physique; and descriptions ballistic checking out techniques.

Takes a glance at How Armour Works

The booklet discusses ceramics for armour purposes; obvious armour; and metals for armour functions (including aluminium alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys and steels); in addition to composite armour structures; explosive reactive armour structures just about protective reduction suites for automobiles; and wound ballistics. furthermore, the writer lists greater than a hundred references for complex learn and extra reading.

Armour: fabrics, conception, and Design

introduces quite a few armour applied sciences, outlines smooth threats and risks appropriate to safety expertise, and aids readers in enforcing protecting constructions that may be utilized in conflict, clash, army zones, and different similar environments.

Sample text

The time between each pulse is the time for the wave to transit twice the thickness of the sample. 6 Longitudinal wave transmission through a silicon carbide target. Here, the transducer is used in ‘pulse-echo’ mode, which means that the transducer detects the reflection of the wave from the free surface of the target. This is the longitudinal wave velocity for the silicon carbide. In practice, it is common to use as many ‘repeats’ as possible where the identical feature is discernible in both pulses from which the measurements are taken.

Equally, strain data are acquired through the use of a strain gauge applied to the sample or by visual means using a high-speed camera. Velocities of impact are quite modest (~1–25 m/s), and the main purpose of the machine is to simulate an impact from a dropped mass at height by either dropping the tup mounted on a carriage from the actual height or from a ‘simulated’ height through the use of spring acceleration or a bungee cord attached to the carriage and base. 3 Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar Test The split-Hopkinson pressure bar apparatus was developed in the 1940s by Herbert Kolsky (it is sometimes referred to as the Kolsky bar).

3a. 3 Schematic of (a) an element subjected to simple tension and (b) where the element is subjected to a force at an angle from the parallel surface. have a case where the force no longer acts normal to the surface but at some angle to it. The force can now be resolved into two components: one component of force acting perpendicular to the surface, Ft, and one component of force acting parallel to the surface, Fs. The force acting parallel to the surface loads the element in shear. 3b the forces acting on the vertical surfaces of the element due to the presence of shear have to be drawn.
