Abstract:

An analytical model is presented for determining the peak axial pressure generated at various depths in the target when impacted at hypervelocity by a projectile of imilar or dissimilar material. Detailed calculations are given for impact of aluminum, iron, lead and copper into aluminum targets. Available experimental data for impact into aluminum targets are discussed in terms of the theory.
