Abstract:

In view of the recent Australian statements, experiments have been made with Munroe Jets from 45 steel cones on the 1.38 diameter scale, passing through various layers of oxidising substances, before attacking the main target of massive steel. The protection afforded is compared with that from equivalent thickness and equivalent weight of mild steel, and from various other non-metallic materials.
