Ballistic Penetration Effects on Biaxially Loaded Graphite/Epoxy Composite Panels.
Contractor rept. Sep 72-Sep 73,
SOUTHWEST RESEARCH INST SAN ANTONIO TEX
Pagination or Media Count:
The behavior of laminated plates of graphite epoxy subjected to 0.30 cal. AP projectile impact has been studied experimen-tally and analytically. The threshold strength and residual strength of these panels were determined, and, in the process, some measure of the cumulative effects of bending, shear and compression waves in the plates was obtained from the difference between the threshold and the residual strengths.
