Abstract:

Craters were obtained in a typical brittle high-temperature graphitic material by the impact of water, glass, nylon, steel, and lead spheres in the White Oak Laboratory Ballistics Range Facility. The crater depth and volume are tabluated for the various impacting particles at various velocities up to 10K ftsec. These results are discussed and interpreted in terms of various theoretical models. Author
