Abstract:

A technique for mreauring the areal density of composite armor ceramic face and woven roving backup was investigated. The technique consisted of taking cores of one square inch in area from the ceramic plate and measuring the density by two methods the dry weight method and water displacement method. The effect of the spall shield on the areal density is discussed, together with various methods of machining the ceramic cores.
