MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND BONDING EFFICIENCY OF STEEL COMPOSITES,

Pagination or Media Count:
The investigation concerns a study of the mechanical properties and bonding efficiency of steel composites. Tensile, slow bend, and hardness data are reported for several alloy combinations. Bonding efficiency of the composite materials, as defined by the tension and slow bend tests, are correlated with ballistic performance results. Results of the program indicate that excellent agreement exists between the tension and slow bend tests as to the quality of the interface bond. These results also correlated well with those obtained from the ballistic tests. Thus, it can be concluded that the tension and slow bend tests can be used as screening tools to define the delamination tendency of steel composites. Author
