Authors: Rosenberg, Zvi, Dekel, Erez Applies a unique approach using numerical simulations as sensitivity measures Helps readers gain an understanding of the basis of physics behind the phenomena Combines experimental data, numerical simulations and analytical modeling Includes new modeling approaches for thick concrete walls, thin concrete slabs and thick metallic plates This book comprehensively discusses essential aspects of terminal ballistics, combining experimental data, numerical simulations and analytical modeling. Employing a unique approach to numerical simulations as a measure of sensitivity for the major physical parameters, the new edition also includes the following features: new figures to better illustrate the problems discussed improved explanations for the equation of state of a solid and for the cavity expansion process new data concerning the Kolsky bar test and a discussion of analytical modeling for the hole diameter in a thin metallic plate impacted by a shaped charge jet. The section on thick concrete targets penetrated by rigid projectiles has now been expanded to include the latest findings, and two new sections have been added: one on a novel approach to the perforation of thin concrete slabs, and one on testing the failure of thin metallic plates using a hydrodynamic ram. Number of Illustrations and Tables 13 b/w illustrations, 259 illustrations in colour Topics Engineering Design Structural Materials Continuum Mechanics and Mechanics of Materials Metallic Materials
