Abstract : Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, is collaborating with Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, and Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Newport, to produce layered polyurea/woven crimp graded composite panels optimized for blast and fragment impact protection. The intent is to develop blast and impact resistant elastomeric coatings and woven fabric-reinforced polymer composites for use in numerous structural and survivability applications as well as applications where improved lightweight blast and impact protection is a necessity. This report documents the NSWCDD light gas gun experimental portion of this effort.
