The study was concerned with using the Poncelet penetration equation to predict the instantaneous velocity of a 20mm APT Armor Piercing Tracer, M95, projectile at various depths into long-grained, polished rice. The Poncelet predictions found have yet to be tested with a controlled firing program. Author
